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.

Incarceration Nation – NRW 2023 Screening
31 May @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm GMT
Come along to the ACT Council of Social Service National Reconciliation Week screening of Incarceration Nation, made possible by the National Film & Sound Archive.
“Incarceration Nation is a story of strength and resistance in the face of racism and oppression. The film lays bare the story of the continued systemic injustice and oppression of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples on their own land, told by Indigenous Australians.
This story needs to be told; it’s time to put our Nation’s justice system on trial.
The greatest cost is the loss of culture, community and lives.
Every day, thousands of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples across Australia wake up behind the bars of Australian prisons. Children live out their childhood in juvenile detention centres, hundreds of kilometres away from their families. Families watch on as the deaths of their once imprisoned relatives play out in courtrooms.”
