Reconciliation Week

Recognising and celebrating Reconciliation Week through music

National Reconciliation Week (NRW) is celebrated across Australia each year between 27 May and 3 June. The dates commemorate two significant milestones in the reconciliation journey; the anniversaries of the successful 1967 referendum and the High Court Mabo decision.

The week is a time for all Australians to learn about our shared histories, cultures and achievements, and to explore how each of us can join the national reconciliation effort.

City of Prospect is excited to celebrate 2016 Reconciliation Week with an afternoon of outstanding contemporary Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander music and dance to be held in the Prospect Town Hall and Vine St Plaza.

On Sunday 5 June starting at 2pm, a Welcome to Country Ceremony will be followed by youth indigenous dance performances, live art demonstrations, emerging and established indigenous artists, and live bands until 6pm.
