Reconciliation Week 2024

Reconciliation Week 2024 runs from 27 May to 3 June. It’s an opportunity for all Australians to learn more about the histories and cultures of our nation, and to reflect on how each of us can contribute to achieving reconciliation in Australia.

What is reconciliation?

At its core, reconciliation aims to foster stronger connections between Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities and non-Indigenous populations, ultimately benefiting all Australians. 

For Indigenous peoples, Australia's colonial past is marked by severe land loss, violence, and discrimination. Despite this, significant strides towards reconciliation have been made in the past fifty years. 

Reconciliation is an ongoing process, serving as a reminder that while previous generations have worked tirelessly for substantial progress, future advancements will require equal, if not greater, dedication and effort.

This year’s Reconciliation Week theme: Now More Than Ever

The theme for this year’s National Reconciliation Week, Now More Than Ever, is a reminder to all of us that, no matter what, the fight for justice and the rights of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people will—and must—continue.

Now more than ever, we need to tackle the unfinished business of reconciliation. We know that the 6.2 million Australians who voted in support of the Indigenous Voice to Parliament last year are committed to better outcomes for First Nations people, and will continue to stand up for this cause. 

We all have a role to play when it comes to reconciliation, and in playing our part we collectively build relationships and communities that value Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, histories, cultures, and futures.
