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.

Earth Fire Water – Queensland Youth Orchestra
20 May @ 7:00 pm - 9:30 pm AEST
The elements collide in this evocative performance from the Queensland Youth Symphony with conductor Simon Hewett and the extraordinary William Barton. Debussy’s La Mer is perhaps the most famous musical depiction of the beauty, majesty, and awesome power of the sea.
Acclaimed Queensland composer and didgeridoo player William Barton brings us back home with his moving portrayal of connection to country in Apii Thatini Mu Murtu (To sing and carry a coolamon on country together).
The premiere of a new ballet version of the ancient Russian fairytale The Firebird in 1910 established Stravinsky as the leading composer of his generation.
Stravinsky’s orchestra sounds both archaic and modern: exotic harmonies are contrasted with Russian folk melodies; the sinister, primal energies of the famous ‘Infernal Dance’ resolves into lyrical grandeur and a dazzling final climax.
