Reconciliation Week 27 May to 3 June

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.

We are committed to our role in supporting and advocating for a deeper understanding of reconciliation through building our relationships with First Nations communities and organisations and recognising their invaluable contribution to our City.

Commemorating National Sorry Day

Port Phillip Citizens for Reconciliation host an annual lunch to commemorate National Sorry Day. This year’s event was held at South Melbourne Community Centre on Tuesday 28 May. It included a performance from Maylene Slater Burns. Maylene Yinarr is an Indigenous songstress hailing from Narrm/Melbourne. Captivating audiences with her soul-stirring ballads, her music is a rich blend of music and healing.
