Australian Reconciliation Convention

Posted by Team APATA | Nov 10, 2021

The Australian Reconciliation Convention is a once in a generation event, the first national reconciliation gathering in more than 20 years.

2021 marks twenty years of Reconciliation Australia and almost three decades of the Australian formal reconciliation process.

Over this time, support and engagement with reconciliation has steadily grown, with far greater awareness of the complexity and magnitude of First Nations cultures and knowledges.

For three days in November, join the interactive Eventcast platform so you too can be part of this vibrant and historic landmark event in Australia’s reconciliation journey.

Hear from a range of Aboriginal and Torres Strait voices, non-Indigenous and international speakers such as NITV’s Natalie Ahmat: The Hon Linda Burney MP (The first Aboriginal person elected to NSW Parliament); Dr Jackie Huggins Am FAHA;  Whadjuk Noongar Journalist Narelda Jacobs; Kerry O’Brien, Kirli Saunders and so many more.

The Australian Reconciliation Convention Program includes panel discussions with local, national and international  perspectives to reflect on the past and to explore the future of a just, equitable, and reconciled Australia. With bonus Foundation sessions this week.

Day One is hosted by Luke Carroll, Day Two – Jodie Taylor, and Day Three – John Paul Janke.
