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.
The theme for National Reconciliation Week 2023, Be a Voice for Generations, encourages all Australians to be a voice for reconciliation in tangible ways in our everyday lives – where we live, work and socialise.
Each year Reconciliation SA hosts the Annual National Reconciliation Week (NRW) Breakfast to launch NRW week in South Australia, you are invited to purchase a ticket or table and join us in hearing how you and your organisation/community can bring this years theme to life. There will be live performances and key speakers, see below for program details.
Every year on 26 May, National Sorry Day remembers and acknowledges the mistreatment of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people who were forcibly removed from their families and communities, which we now know as ‘The Stolen Generations’. National Sorry Day is a day to acknowledge the strength of Stolen Generations Survivors and reflect on how we can all play a part in the healing process for our people and nation.
This event is made possible with the support of our generous sponsors. We'd like to thank our Principal Sponsors, Department for Child Protection and Department of Education, and all our other valued sponsors below.
