National Reconciliation Week 2022
National Reconciliation Week—27 May to 3 June—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.
This year we are being asked to make change beginning with brave actions in our daily lives – in our communities, our workplaces and our friendship groups.
The artwork this year by Torres Strait Islander illustrator, Tori-Jay Mordey shows some of the different faces of Australians working for a just and equal society. They are a visual reminder that reconciliation is everybody’s business. “I sought inspiration of what that kind of brave change might look like from many different people; people I know that are around me, people I see every day. And people I see living bravely every day in their own lives – from fierce little kids to older people working with more established mindsets and environments. We can make a change. But we can’t do it alone. Be brave and start the conversation today.”
Last year we started on our own reconciliation journey with a Reconciliation Action Plan and are proud to have also received our Certificate of Membership of Reconciliation WA. Our team is looking forward to participating in the Walk for Reconciliation again this year. We would like to invite our members and stakeholders to join with us on 3 June in demonstrating our support for, and solidarity with, the reconciliation movement. Alternatively we encourage everyone to participate in one of the other many events happening throughout National Reconciliation Week such as the Virtual Breakfast on 27 May or the very popular Yarning Circles. Take a look at what’s on in WA here.
