Reconciliation NSW is the peak body for advancing reconciliation in NSW.
Supporting, promoting and advocating for increased knowledge and understanding of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultures and advocating pathways to self determination for Australia’s Traditional custodians.
Reconciliation cannot only be symbolic. For reconciliation to be achieved there needs to be a series of real, practical outcomes in relation to the systemic disadvantage experienced by Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. In a reconciled Australia, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children will have the same life opportunities and choices as non-Indigenous children, and the length and quality of a person’s life will not be determined by their racial background. For this reason, NSWRC focuses on both symbolic and practical elements of reconciliation at the local level.
This webinar is just one event on the Reconciliation NSW Calendar.
Coming up 23 November, 9:30AM AEDT is the Schools Reconciliation Challenge Online Launch and Awards Ceremony where you will be able to see all of the entries for this years Under One Sky Yesterday, Today and Forever, the Schools Reconciliation Challenge theme with special guest Uncle Bruce Pascoe.
