Reconciliation Week 2021 runs from Thursday 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.
You can find out more in our Reconciliation Action Plan.
The theme of this year's Reconciliation Week is More than a word: Reconciliation takes action. It urges us to move towards braver and more impactful action to support reconciliation. After celebrating online last year, we are excited to be able to mark this occasion in person with our community.
Unfortunately all in-person events planned in the City of Port Phillip during Reconciliation Week have been cancelled due to COVID-19 restrictions.
This includes the planned flag-raising event at St Kilda Town Hall to mark the start of Reconciliation Week on Thursday 27 May and the Mabo Day flag-raising event on Thursday 3 June.
