Community invited to hear stories of friendship for Reconciliation Week

18/05/2018

Members of the community are invited to attend a talk exploring Aboriginal culture and stories of friendship for Reconciliation Week 2018 at Hurstville Museum & Gallery.

This year Reconciliation Week marks the ten-year anniversary of the National Apology, and is an opportunity for Australians to think about how they can strengthen respectful relationships between Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and the wider Australian community.

The program will include guest speakers Aboriginal Elder Aunty Marjorie Anderson, Aboriginal Elder Aunty Annette Webb and Lorraine Watson, who will talk around this year’s theme ‘Don’t keep history a mystery: Learn. Share. Grow’.

At the talk, community members will be given an insight into one woman’s perspective on life as an Aboriginal person, and hear the incredible story behind the friendship between two amazing women.

The talk will take place from 10.00am on Thursday 24 May at Hurstville Museum & Gallery.
