The 2021 National Reconciliation Week theme, ‘More than a word. Reconciliation takes action’, urges the reconciliation movement towards braver and more impactful action.
We are officially launching 2021 National Reconciliation Week by asking everyone to acknowledge the Traditional Owners of the Country you are on.
Join us at 9am AEST on Thursday 27 May and share your acknowledgement on social media to show the strength and respect of the reconciliation movement.
You can also register and post on the Facebook event. If you are at an event at that time of day, add your voices to the national event.
Use #NRW2021 and #MoreThanAWord to tag your posts and download posters and resources.
Acknowledging Country shows you accept and understand that no matter where you are across this nation, you are on Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander lands.
2021’s theme urges us all to take action for reconciliation. Check out 20 actions you can take for reconciliation in 2021.
Reconciliation is more than raising awareness and knowledge. As a nation, and importantly, as people, we need to move from ‘safe’ to ‘brave’ in order to realise the promise of reconciliation.
Events during the week
We are overwhelmed by the number of events being added to the National Reconciliation Week 2021 calendar. You can post and share your own event now.
The calendar is full of seminars, webinars, walks, celebrations, and commemorations. While some are in-person events, many are virtual so you can experience, learn and take action from wherever you are.
