Exhibition SRC 2022: From River to Sea @ Everglades House & Gardens
May 25 @ 1:30 pm – Jul 14 @ 3:30 pm

The Schools Reconciliation Challenge exhibition ‘River to Sea: Our Island Home’ showcases a colourful collection of student finalists work exploring reconciliation and celebrating First Nations people’s ancient knowledge and connection to lands and waters.

Each year the National Trust partners with Reconciliation NSW to tour the student finalists’ works throughout the state, allowing more schools to get involved and showcase their art and writing works.

In 2024, Reconciliation NSW’s 13th Schools Reconciliation Challenge exhibition is comprised of a variety of impactful works from NSW primary and high school students portraying their perspective on the theme for reconciliation, ‘River to Sea: Our Island Home‘, celebrating First Nations people’s ancient knowledge and connection to lands and waters.

Water is the lifeblood for First Nations people who, for over 60,000 years, have lived on this vast and arid continent. For Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, their relationship with water goes far beyond that of just physical survival; it is deeply embedded in identity, spirituality, cultural practices and ways of life.

This unmissable exhibition features an array of visually colourful artworks that celebrate Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people’s cultures, histories, languages, stories and the call for all Australians to participate in reconciliation.

General entry costs apply (FREE- $17)

Armidale NRW Bridge Walk 2024 @ Corners of March & Dumaresq Streets, Armidale
May 26 @ 12:00 pm – 4:00 pm

ANTaR Armidale has announced its 14th annual Armidale Bridge Walk, which will take place at 12 noon on Sunday 26 May, at the picnic area near the Visitor Information Centre, on the corner of Dumaresq and Marsh Streets in Armidale. Held during or close to National Reconciliation Week, the walk commemorates the Sydney Bridge Walk held in 2000 when 300,000 people
walked across the Harbour Bridge and “Sorry” was written across the sky.

“Each year Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal people walk together across Stephen’s Bridge, do a circuit of the park and then gather to listen to short speeches and enjoy Aboriginal entertainment. It is a great opportunity to meet and chat with friends, old and new, enjoy the entertainment and have lunch together,” said ANTaR Convenor Diana Eades.

This year we are thrilled to again feature local Aboriginal dancer and didgeridoo player Bob Blair, who works at the Armidale Aboriginal Cultural Centre and Keeping Place. Since his training at NAISDA (the National Aboriginal and Islander Dance College), Mr Blair has been educating and entertaining young and old in many regions.

An exciting addition to the entertainment this year will be popular musical trio Garlu Gindari (Kathy Kelly, Des Ahoy and Brian Zambrowski).
The Bridge Walk has become a popular outing for the community – everyone is invited and is welcome to come along and enjoy this friendly, fun, free event. Sausages, curry and fruit will be provided.

ANTaR Armidale is a local group working in support of recognition, respect and rights for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. We recognise wonderful support for our Bridge Walk this year from Homes North Community Housing, Armidale Regional Council, Headspace, Reconciliation New South Wales and Coles Armidale.

This event is delivered in conjunction with Reconciliation NSW. Reconciliation NSW annually hosts the NRW Virtual Breakfast event and livestreams it to Local Reconciliation Groups and workplaces across the state to host their own regional events. HARR is proud to be able to host a 2024 NRW event for the community of Hornsby and surrounds, with support from Reconciliation NSW, joining thousands of community groups, schools and workplaces to talk about this year’s NRW theme:

#NRW2024 #NowMoreThanEver

The National Reconciliation Week theme for 2024, Now More Than Ever, is a reminder to all of us that no matter what, the fight for justice and the rights of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people will —and must —continue.

  • There have been many moments in Australia’s reconciliation journey that make us want to turn away. But when things are divisive, the worst thing we can do is disengage or disconnect.
  • Now more than ever, we need to tackle the unfinished business of reconciliation. We know that the 6.2 million Australians who voted YES are committed to better outcomes for First Nations people, and are with us.
  • Reconciliation supporters must stand up to defend and uphold the rights of First Nations peoples. To call out racism wherever we encounter it, and to actively reinforce the voices of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples across this continent.
  • Now more than ever, the work continues. In treaty making, in truth-telling, in understanding our history, in education, and in tackling racism. We need connection. We need respect. We need action. And we need change.
  • Now more than ever, we need reconciliation.

When: 29 May, 4pm-6pm

Where: Hornsby Library (Room 4)

In Bangarra’s first mainstage cross-cultural collaboration, leading Māori choreographer and Arts Laureate Moss Te Ururangi Patterson joins beloved Bangarra alumna Deborah Brown.
