National Reconciliaton Week: 27 May to 3 June 2022

The theme for National Reconciliation Week 2022 is: ‘Be brave, make change’.

National Reconciliation Week is a time for all Australians to learn more about our shared histories, cultures, and achievements, and how each of us can contribute to achieving reconciliation in Australia.

The City of Stonnington is committed to make change through Reconciliation and recognises the valuable contributions to Victoria made by all people of the East Kulin Nations and all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.

We will work together towards a future of mutual respect and harmony.

The City of Stonnington Reconciliation Action Plan provides leadership for our community as we continue our reconciliation journey.

Council is supporting Reconciliation Week with a range of free activities on Saturday 28 May that give the community the opportunity to connect with our Indigenous culture.
