National Reconciliation Week

2023 Events

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.


You can also add your own event to this calendar or register your private event.

Jenna Lee – Hand-Pressed Paper

27 May @ 12:00 am - 3 June @ 11:30 pm AEST

The QAGOMA Children’s Art Centre has collaborated with artist Jenna Lee to create a fun, downloadable PDF activity in connection to National Reconciliation Week 2023.

Jenna is a Gulumerridjin (Larrakia), Wardaman and KarraJarri Saltwater woman with Japanese, Chinese, Filipino and Anglo-Australian ancestry. In her work, Jenna explores her identity, culture and childhood through different mediums.

When Jenna was a child, her mother taught her how to make handmade paper – a skill that the artist still uses today. She likes that handmade paper can be made from recycled material that would otherwise be thrown away.

Jenna’s PDF activity invites children to create their own piece of recycled handmade paper.
