National Reconciliation Week (NRW) plays an integral role in the University’s cultural life. It is in this week that we raise awareness of the importance of coming together to acknowledge and celebrate Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultures across the institution.
The 2020 theme for National Reconciliation Week (NRW) is In This Together. This theme reinforces our shared role of building mutual respect and understanding in the spirit of reconciliation.
National Reconciliation Week is celebrated every year from 27 May - 3 June 2019. These dates represent two significant milestones in our country’s reconciliation journey – the successful 1967 referendum, and the High Court Mabo decision, respectively.
The theme for 2019 was "Grounded in Truth: Walk Together With Courage”. In celebration of this important event and national theme, the University hosted a series of reconciliation activities.
Sea of Hands
For the first time in 2019, the University of Adelaide participated in a Sea of Hands installation.
