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

Lunch and film screening – City of Sydney
30 May @ 11:00 am - 2:00 pm AEST
Everyone is welcome to join this free event. After a Welcome to Country and Smoking Ceremony, you’ll be invited to plant a hand as part of ANTaR’s Sea of Hands display. For 26 years the Sea of Hands has been a symbol of solidarity and aims to spread awareness for reconciliation and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander justice, rights and respect.
Hear from guest speaker, Warren Roberts, founder of Yarn Australia and enjoy a cultural dance performance by Rayma Johnson.
Lunch will be provided, followed by a screening of the short film Miro. The film tells the story of an Aboriginal digger who returns home at the end of World War 2 to find his land taken, people gone, daughter stolen and service record treated with contempt. He sets out to reunite his family, waging his own form of justice.
Bookings are essential to join this free event.
