Reconciliation

Wominjeka/ Welcome to the traditional lands of the Kulin Nations, where we draw on the strength of more than 1,000 generations of arts practice.

We respectfully acknowledge the people of the Boon Wurrung and the Woi Wurrung who have danced their dances, sung their songs and lived their culture on this land for tens of thousand of years.

Reconciliation Week

National Reconciliation Week (27 May to 3 June) celebrates the culture and history of the First Australians and is marked by two important dates in history; the 1967 referendum and 1992 Mabo decision. It offers us all a time to celebrate, reflect and commit to a conversation of reconciliation for a better and stronger Australia.
