National Reconciliation Week 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.

What does reconciliation mean to you?
To mark Reconciliation Week, the National Arboretum Canberra invites you or your organisation to share your personal reconciliation journey, for the chance to win a beautiful local hand-made raffia and emu feather woven art by Jessika Spencer. She is a proud Wiradjuri woman and Indigenous Tourism Officer at the Arboretum.
Reconciliation is an important milestone in Australia’s history, with its core focus being to strengthen relationships between Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and non-indigenous peoples.
To enter the competition, all you need to do is answer the below questions:
- What does Reconciliation mean to you?
- How are you actively taking steps towards Reconciliation?
- What are your future aspirations for Reconciliation?
You are encouraged to take inspiration from the 2020 National Reconciliation Week theme of ‘In this together’.
This theme is now resonating in ways that could not have been foreseen, reminding us whether in a crisis or in reconciliation, we are all in this together.
The competition is open until 24 June 2020.
To enter, head to the National Arboretum Canberra website.
