#NRW2021 National Reconciliation Week

National Reconciliation Week (Thursday 27 May - Thursday 3 June 2021) is a time for the ANU Community to learn about and celebrate our shared histories and cultures, and to explore how each of us can contribute to achieving reconciliation in Australia with our First Nations peoples. The theme for National Reconciliation Week (NRW) 2021 is 'More than a word. Reconciliation takes action', urging the reconciliation movement towards braver and more impactful action. Celebrate NRW this year with the ANU Community by sharing stories, history and culture.
