National Reconciliation Week has been held in Australia every year between 27 May and 3 June since 1996. It provides the opportunity for all Australians to reflect on the relationship between Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people and other Australians.
At UniSA’s City West Reconciliation Week event, there was a free cooking demonstration of Indigenous food as well as a special symposium, Aboriginal Futures, Post Referendum 1967, Where to From Here? The symposium was an opportunity to discuss the 1967 Referendum and where to from here for Aboriginal futures.
The City East Reconciliation Week event included a bush food tasting and barbecue, as well as basket weaving and rock painting.
The Mawson Lakes Reconciliation Week event included a barbecue, painting, bush food planting and tasting and potato picnic at Wadajaden Scrub.
At Magill, there was a range of events including a reconciliation afternoon tea, artwork viewing for local school students, staff and parents, as well as movie screenings and tile painting.
Each year thousands of UniSA students benefit from scholarships and grants worth millions of dollars. Earlier this month UniSA presented 130 named scholarships, grants and prizes at a special ceremony held at the Kerry Packer Civic Gallery. The University continues to work with donors to establish new opportunities for students.
