National Reconciliation Week
National Reconciliation Week (NRW) is a time for all Australians to learn about our shared histories, cultures, and achievements, and to explore how each of us can contribute to achieving reconciliation in Australia.
The dates for NRW are the same each year; 27 May to 3 June.
Every year workplaces, schools, early learning services, community groups, reconciliation groups, and people right across the country host a whole range of activities.
You can also add your own event to this calendar or register your private event.
Please note: the events posted below are not the responsibility of Reconciliation Australia. If you have any questions regarding an event, please contact the organisers.
Aboriginal Basket Weaving – City of Marion
27 May @ 10:00 am - 22 July @ 12:00 pm ACST
These weaving workshops are run by local Aboriginal woman Tahnae Davidson-Bartley.
In these workshops you will learn about techniques that were taught by Aboriginal Elders, traditionally they used natural materials, you will learn how they were harvested and prepared.
You will learn how to start your work, how to secure the stitches and how to add more materials to increase the size or change the shape of your artwork. You will learn how to taper off, and close the weaving stitch. Raffia will be supplied, but you are welcome to bring along some material that you think you may be able to weaving into your creation. You can come to one workshop, or you are welcome to join each workshop and bring your work along to continue on.
