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.

Putuparri and the Rainmakers

30 May @ 1:00 pm - 4:30 pm AEST

Griffith University is committed to reconciliation and creating a brighter future for all.

As our nation considers an Indigenous Voice to Parliament, we strive to be a place where Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people feel valued and respected.

Our mission is to listen and act on the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander voices in our community and to use their knowledge, experience and perspectives to enrich our learning, teaching, research and community engagement.

Our screening of Nicole Ma’s 2015 documentary Putuparri and the Rainmakers, speaks deeply to how we think about reconciliation-a shared process of acknowledgement and reconnection, valuing ancestral knowledge and respecting traditional culture in our institution.

Following the screening is a Q&A with Nicole Ma, moderated by Tina O’Keefe.
