About Still We Rise

National Reconciliation Week concludes with a screening of Still We Rise (2022), directed by John Harvey from Saibai Island in the Torres Strait. This documentary brings together historical and contemporary voices and perspectives on First Nations Australian Justice and Land Rights, collated 50 years after the beginning of the Aboriginal Tent Embassy in front of Old Parliament House in 1972.

About National Reconciliation Week

Keep up the momentum for change: the theme for National Reconciliation Week 2023 is Be a Voice for Generations. 

The theme encourages all Australians to be a voice for reconciliation in tangible ways in our everyday lives – where we live, work, and socialise. 

For the work of generations past, and the benefit of generations future, act today for a more just, equitable and reconciled country for all. 

2023 National Reconciliation Week – 27 May to 3 June – 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.
