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.

Gone Fishing

20 May, 2023 @ 10:00 am - 21 January, 2024 @ 5:00 pm AEST

‘Gone Fishing’ at the Gallery of Modern Art presents works from the Gallery’s Indigenous Australian art collection that affirm this cultural, social and recreational activity. Alongside the display of fish traps, spears, nets and depictions of leisure, the exhibition also showcases works responding to discussions of rising and warming seas, water contamination, and the struggles faced by Traditional Owners to continue to care for their sea Country.

Many of the works included speak to the artists’ community’s position on these long-held debates, standing against destruction, pollution and the effects of climate change, which threaten the vitality of all aspects of our lives.
