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.

Ngarra Dance Presenation and Be a voice for generations: writing workshop with Tony Birch
3 June @ 10:30 am - 2:30 pm AEST
The Bunurong Land Council are a Traditional Owner organisation that represent the Bunurong people of the South-Eastern Kulin Nation and will provide a Welcome to Country and Smoking ceremony to begin this event. You can then join Mandy Nicholson from Djirra Djirra at Sandringham library to learn about the journey of Wurundjeri women’s dance and how these dances can be created from revival language.
Dr. Tony Birch, an acclaimed First Nations author of award-winning books, including novels “The White Girl”, “Ghost River” and “Blood”, as well as poetry books and short story collections, will be running a workshop.
Tony is also a climate justice and Indigenous rights activist, as well as an avid footy fan, so giving up his Saturday afternoon to run this workshop is something we really appreciate!
