National Reconciliation Week (NRW) runs from 27 May to 3 June each year and 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 theme for 2021, More than a word. Reconciliation takes action, urges the reconciliation movement towards braver and more impactful action.
Every year workplaces, schools, early learning services, community groups, reconciliation groups, and people right across the country host a whole range of events.
From awards to webinars, virtual and in-person events we all find our best ways to build awareness, knowledge and action for National Reconciliation Week 2021.
