National Reconciliation Week

Wominjeka! During Glen Eira Council's National Reconciliation Week program, talented Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander storytellers, artists and musicians celebrate their cultures.

The Glen Eira Council National Reconciliation Week program runs every year from 27 May to 3 June. Through this program, talented First Nations storytellers, artists and musicians celebrate their cultures. These events also build bonds between First Nations peoples and other Australians.

To protect the community against COVID-19, events were only run online in 2020. 

We hope to join you in celebrating First Nations cultures again in 2021 in our beautiful parks. For now, you can watch some of last year's events below.

You can watch or listen to Parbin-ata Carolyn Briggs' Story of the Possum Cloak or view modern art in Glen Eira’s Celebrating Culture exhibition.
