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.

Aboriginal Cultural Awareness and Understanding Workshop
1 June @ 8:00 am - 12:00 pm AWST
Auspire – Australia Day Council WA presents an Aboriginal Culture and Awareness workshop during National Reconciliation Week. Delivered by Noongar leader, Danny Ford OAM, this workshop explores Aboriginal People’s histories, values, belief systems, experiences and lifestyles. It also discusses the impacts of colonisation and how these still play out today with our First Peoples and mainstream Australia.
This session is a great entry level for those starting out their Aboriginal Cultural Competency journey. The session will assist participants with information and understanding that can improve communities and workplaces for both Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal people. Basic Aboriginal cultural awareness and understanding can facilitate real and lasting change through changed attitudes and behaviours at both a professional and personal level.
