National Reconciliation Week 2018 Celebrations

National Reconciliation Week 2018 Celebrations

National Reconciliation Week celebrates and builds on the respectful relationships shared by Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and other Australians and commemorate two significant milestones in the reconciliation journey— the successful 1967 referendum, and the High Court Mabo decision respectively.

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 week reminds us that big changes take persistence and courage, so let’s celebrate together and take the next steps.

Come along to Harmony Square and enjoy:

  • Aboriginal Flag Raising Ceremony

  • Welcome to Country

  • Smoking Ceremony

  • Didgeridoo performance

 

The public are invited to all the celebrations and to join in the morning tea that will take place in the Council Chambers with the unveiling of the Reconciliation Art Work.

For further information contact Council 8571 1000.


Locations: Harmony Square, 225 Lonsdale Street, Dandenong
