2018 National Reconciliation Week theme announced

“Don't keep history a mystery - Learn. Share. Grow.”

NRW 2018: Sunday 27 May – Sunday 3 June

Reconciliation Australia have announced the theme for 2018: “Don't keep history a mystery - Learn. Share. Grow.”

NRW 2018 is a key activity in the Reconciliation movement’s strategy to support Australians in making progress in the reconciliation dimension Historical Acceptance. This dimension addresses whether all Australians acknowledge the injustices and actions of the past and their impacts (both historical and contemporary) and are making amends for past wrongs.
 
This year, NRW invites Australians to Learn, Share, Grow – by exploring their past, learning more about Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander history and cultures and developing a deeper understanding of our national story.

Reconciliation is everybody's business, so we invite everyone to get involved.  For event and activity ideas and to find out Reconciliation Victoria can help visit our webpage


About Us

Reconciliation Victoria is the product of a people's movement. Following the work of the Council for Aboriginal Reconciliation, Reconciliation Victoria Inc. was established in 2002 by a group of individuals keen to address the unfinished business of the 'Roadmap to Reconciliation'.

As the State body for Reconciliation, Reconciliation Victoria has focused on leading the reconciliation process in Victoria by supporting the growth of Local Reconciliation Groups, promoting cultural awareness and education in the broader community, working with young people, developing strategic partnerships, and delivering the Community HART Awards in partnership with the Victorian Local Government Association.

Reconciliation Victoria has played a vital role in educating the public on important issues relevant to Aboriginal Victorians. We recognise the great disparity in outcomes between Indigenous and non-Indigenous people on health, education and employment, and seek to do better. Indeed, we must continue to push government and others to do better on these issues.

Reconciliation Victoria has championed the recognition of Aboriginal Victorians as the first Victorians, and the special place they have in our community. Respect for culture, land and heritage is something all Victorians must develop further.

Reconciliation Victoria plays a role in bringing together Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal Victorians to recognise and share what we have in common; and to work on a greater understanding of the issues that keep us apart.
