National Reconciliation Week

National Reconciliation Week 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 runs from 27 May to 3 June every year. These dates commemorate two significant milestones in the reconciliation journey – the successful 1967 referendum and the High Court Mabo decision.

The RAP team look forward to bringing you exciting events to mark National Reconciliation Week in 2021. You may also like to plan local events for your team or school.

This year’s theme

The theme for 2021 is ‘More than a word. Reconciliation takes action’ urging the reconciliation movement towards braver and more impactful action.
