National Reconciliation Week 2022 – Be Brave, Make Change

Published on Tuesday, 7 June 2022 at 8:55:58 AM

National Reconciliation Week (NRW) 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.


The GRAMS TIS team were invited to the Geraldton TAFE Reconciliation week event, where we set up our display and provided information on how to quit smoking information. Tobacco is one of the leading contributors to the burden of disease among Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, and we want to help the community to respect their health so we can all have better lives.


GRAMS were also invited to the NRW Morning Tea at the Museum of Geraldton. The spectacular photo entries from last year’s NAIDOC Heal Country Photography Competition were also on display for community appreciation and to acknowledge the strength of our culture. There were also keynote speakers addressing what reconciliation means and what we can do to work towards strengthening our relationships.


Both events were a fantastic opportunity for the community to come together to have a yarn, reflect on our past and explore what it means to be brave and make change.


“The National Reconciliation Week 2022 theme, “Be Brave. Make Change.” is a challenge to all Australians— individuals, families, communities, organisations and government—to Be Brave and tackle the unfinished business of reconciliation so we can Make Change for the benefit of all Australians.”
