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.

On Becoming – Jessika Spencer
15 May @ 9:00 am - 16 June @ 5:00 pm GMT
An exhibition by Wiradjuri woman, Jessika Spencer.
“This exhibition is about growth, evolution, shedding and transforming. Each piece has been made during a heavy transitional period in my life that caused severe upheaval. I wove these pieces as an act of healing, calling on the strength of the First Nations women in my life who had gone through adversity. Some were created on Ngunnawal, Ngambri Country, while others were made on my ancestral homelands of Wiradjuri Country deep in the Riverina. Utilising natural resources including plant fibres, fallen branches and emu feathers hand gathered on country – I made sure to create sustainable pieces. I’ve combined traditional materials with contemporary ones, binding them together with weaving techniques that have been passed onto me. These pieces are an extension of myself: the softness, the strength and the resilience. ” – Jessika Spencer
