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.
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.

COUNTRYMAN Documentary Reconciliation Week Q&A Screening
26 May @ 5:30 pm - 9:30 pm AEST
The Australian feature documentary COUNTRYMAN, (or MANU WALJJI in Warumungu/ ZEMLJAK in Croatian), will be screened to communities across Victoria, the ACT, NSW and Queensland on the lead up to and during National Reconciliation Week.
COUNTRYMAN was directed and co-produced by Peter Pecotić, an Australian with Croatian heritage whose late father gave initial inspiration for the film and Joseph Williams, an Australian First Nations Warumungu artist also with Croatian heritage.
Countryman is a fascinating exploration of identity, environment, and reconciliation.
Q&A screenings with Joseph and Peter in attendance will be hosted by various community organisations across Victoria, ACT, Sydney and Brisbane including a screening co-hosted by the Australian National University Film Group and the Croatian Embassy in Canberra and at Macquarie University co-hosted by the Croatian Studies Foundation. The roadshow is supported by the Julalikari Council Aboriginal Corporation and Nyinkka Nyunyu Art & Culture Centre
