National Reconciliation Week 2022

Friday 27 May marks the beginning of Reconciliation Week. National Reconciliation Week (NRW) 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.

Be Brave. Make Change.

The 2022 National Reconciliation Week theme, “Be Brave. Make Change.” is a challenge calling all Australians to step forward and drive reconciliation on a daily basis. The theme encourages everyone to come together to make change, not only for National Reconciliation Week each year, but in their everyday lives.

About the NRW2022 Illustrations 

National Reconciliation Week 2022 is brought to life by a series of bold, brave characters by contemporary Torres Strait Islander illustrator, Tori-Jay Mordey. The illustrations show some of the different faces of Australians striving for a just and equal society.
