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.

Djakamirr screening and yarning circle
1 June @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm AEST
As part of the Central Victorian Indigenous Film Festival for Reconciliation Week, Bendigo Health is proud to be screening DJÄKAMIRR.
Filmed in remote Arnhem Land, DJÄKAMIRR follows Ḻäwurrpa and Sarah on a unique journey through ancestral time, country and culture. As mutual trust develops between the two women, they hope to empower Yolŋu and reclaim 60,000 years of birthing culture from the stronghold of Western medicine.
This is their story of working with community to pilot the training of djäkamirr- the caretakers of pregnancy and birth.
Please enter via Hope Steet to gain access to the Concert Hall at Bendigo Health, light refreshments from Murnong Mammas will be served with a Yarning Circle of special guests after the screening.
