National Reconciliation Week

Reconciliation Week 2021 #MoreThanAWord

National Reconciliation Week, 27 May - 3 June 2021

All events have been cancelled due to the COVID-19 lockdown. We hope to be able to reschedule soon.

The theme for Reconciliation Week is: More than a word, Reconciliation takes Action.

This theme urges all Australians to be brave and create more impactful action, to speak up, speak the truth, ask the hard questions, see the hard facts, and inform themselves about issues affecting Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.

We are proudly responding by continuing to progress the many actions raised in our Innovate Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP).

Launched in September 2020, the RAP defines the shared approach we will take with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples to advance reconciliation in our workplace and across Banyule.

We remain steadfast in our commitment to reconciliation and creating a just and equal society where Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultures and heritage are a proud part of our shared national identity.

We recognise to achieve this, we must travel this important journey together and we invite all Banyule residents to participate in cultural events during Reconciliation Week.
