National Reconciliation Week 2022

National Reconciliation Week – #BeBraveMakeChange

The theme for National Reconciliation Week (NRW) this year is “Be Brave. Make Change.”  and builds on the success of last years – #MoreThanAWord which asked all Australians to take action; not just in NRW but every week of the year.

This year, Reconciliation Australia, is calling for us to continue this good work and is challenging all Australians to Be Brave – and tackle the unfinished business of reconciliation, so that we can – Make Change – for the benefit of all Australians.  #BeBraveMakeChange

NRW (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 (individuals, families, communities, organisations and governments) can contribute to achieving reconciliation in Australia.

Reconciliation is about creating respectful relationships between Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people and other Australians.  It is an ongoing journey that reminds us that while generations of Australians have fought hard for meaningful change, future gains are likely to take just as much, if not more, effort.

This year’s illustrations, by contemporary Torres Strait Islander Illustrator Tori-Jay Mordey, captures this perfectly.  The illustrations show 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.

We all have a role to play when it comes to reconciliation.
