National Reconciliation Week
Redland City Council is encouraging residents to take action during National Reconciliation Week (27 May to 3 June 2021).
Mayor Karen Williams said this year’s theme – ‘More than a word. Reconciliation takes action’ – is aligned with Council’s commitment to advance reconciliation, both internally and across Redlands Coast.
"Reconciliation is a journey for all Australians – as individuals, families, communities, organisations and a nation.
"During National Reconciliation Week, I encourage everyone to consider what action they can take on that journey as they connect with and enjoy local cultural opportunities.
“Council is committed to growing awareness and knowledge of our Quandamooka People in particular and, more generally, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander history and culture,” Cr Williams said.
