National Reconciliation Week @ the Library


National Reconciliation Week is held between 27 May and 3 June each year and commemorates both the successful 1967 referendum and the High Court Mabo decision in 1992.  

2017 marks the 50th and 25th anniversaries of these significant milestones in reconciliation. 

This National Reconciliation Week, 
‘Let’s Take the Next Steps’ and show our support for reconciliation in Australia. National Reconciliation Week offers all Australians the opportunity to express their commitment to reconciliation and to get involved in reconciliation activities in the community. Find out more about #NRW2017 events near you. 

At RMIT University, we will celebrate National Reconciliation Week in many ways, including the opening of the new Ngarara Willim Centre for Indigenous students at our Bundoora campus.  Please join us at Bundoora on Thursday 1 June to celebrate. And in recognition of National Reconciliation Week #2017, RMIT University Library is featuring key e-resources from our Library’s collection on Reconciliation as part of our ongoing Indigenous Collection Spotlight series.

Remember: the education and celebration doesn't have to stop on 3 June.
