National Reconciliation Week 2022

National Reconciliation Week—27 May to 3 June—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.

MPavilion exists on the stolen land of the people of the Eastern Kulin Nations—land which has been a significant site for gathering, belonging, and storytelling for the people of the Eastern Kulin Nations for more than 60,000 years.

Our vision for reconciliation is a unified society where the diversity and richness of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultures and heritage are recognised, respected, and celebrated.

We are currently developing a Reflect Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP)—scheduled to be complete in 2022—and are whole-heartedly committed to setting long-lasting, meaningful goals as part of this journey. One of these key goals is to prioritise and support the voices of First Nations people in all that we do.

Learn more about National Reconciliation Week, this year’s theme, ‘Be Brave. Make Change’, and the actions we can take every day of the year here.

You can also spend some time hearing from First Nations voices through a range of events from the MPavilion 2021 season in our Podcast Library.
