About the event
What is the 2021 Australian Reconciliation Convention?
The Australian Reconciliation Convention is a landmark event in Australia’s reconciliation journey. The program includes local, national and international perspectives and will reflect on the past to explore the future of a just, equitable, and reconciled Australia.
It will bring together an ever-growing community of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and non-Indigenous Australians to discuss, learn and recommit to the next steps in our reconciliation journey as we urge the reconciliation movement towards braver and more impactful action.
When is the 2021 Australian Reconciliation Convention?
The Convention will take place across three half-days from Monday 15 to Wednesday 17 November 2021.
Each session starts at 11.30am AEDT and ends by 4.30pm AEDT, to provide an accessible experience across all Australian time zones.
Why is the Australian Reconciliation Convention being held online?
Delivering the Convention via EventCast, an interactive broadcast experience, means that we can bring our communities together in a safe and accessible way.
Attendees will still be able to connect with other attendees and organisations from across Australia, interact during sessions and panels, share their reconciliation stories, and more – all from the comfort of their own home or workplace.
What’s on the program?
The Convention’s innovative approach will include rigorous discussions and panel presentations with local, national and international perspectives to reflect on the past and to explore the future of a just, equitable, and reconciled Australia.
It will also include interactive sessions, storytelling, and performances, covering the breadth and depth of how we are moving from safe to brave.
