National Reconciliation Week

27 MAY - 3 JUN 2022


Be brave. Make change.

The National Reconciliation Week 2022 theme, “Be Brave. Make Change.” is a challenge to all Australians— individuals, families, communities, organisations and government—to Be Brave and tackle the unfinished business of reconciliation so we can Make Change for the benefit of all Australians.

Last year Reconciliation Australia encouraged all Australians to take action; not just in National  Reconciliation Week but every week of the year.

This year Reconciliation Australia is asking everyone to make change beginning with brave actions in their daily lives – where they live, work, play and socialise.

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.

Connecting with Culture and Creativity

For over 65,000 years, the land on which Geelong Arts Centre stands has been a significant site for gathering, belonging and storytelling for the Wadawurrung people of the Kulin Nation. Geelong Arts Centre continues this tradition by embracing and celebrating the culture of Australia’s First Peoples and First Nations globally.

Geelong Arts Centre looks forward to exploring wonderful First Nations stories and resources across National Reconciliation Week, and we hope you will join in the conversation and take time connecting to culture.
