Wednesday 27 May – Wednesday 3 June
Reconciliation Australia’s theme for 2021, More than a word. Reconciliation takes action, urges the reconciliation movement towards braver and more impactful action.
To our new supporters, please remember the importance of privileging and amplifying First Nations’ voices as you add your voice to calls for reconciliation and justice.
Reconciliation is a journey for all Australians – as individuals, families, communities, organisations and importantly as a nation. At the heart of this journey are relationships between the broader Australian community and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.
We all have a role to play when it comes to reconciliation, and in playing our part we collectively build relationships and communities that value Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, histories, cultures, and futures
2021 marks twenty years of Reconciliation Australia and almost three decades of Australia’s formal reconciliation process.

You too can plan online events that celebrate and build on respectful relationships shared by Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and other Australians and that show how non-Aboriginal Australians can be active supporters of reconciliation. Some examples of events or activities you could plan for your community include:
– Public online forums on Reconciliation
– Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander cultural tours; Many national cultural and art institutions have online tours and exhibitions;
– Find out more about the First Australians stories and the Endeavour Journey at the National Museum of Australia.
– Film screenings, festivals, concerts, poetry or book readings online;
– Consider engaging with Reconciliation Australia and SBS/NITV’s Reconciliation Film Club initiative, or tune in to NITV during NRW to watch a diversity of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander focused programs.
– Read some Poetry in First Languages at Red Room Poetry
– Check out TED, YouTube talks and performances by local Aboriginal artists, musicians, craftspeople or businesses.
– Support the permanent display of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander flags or banners where they haven’t been before for example the Sydney Harbour Bridge.
