Statewide Reconciliation Forums

Reconciliation Victoria organises three statewide reconciliation forums each year. These are open to anyone who has an interest in progressing meaningful reconciliation in Victoria - all welcome!

We try to vary the themes, locations and speakers for each forum, with one residential forum in a regional location each year, plus two one-day forums in a metro Melbourne location. One of these metro Melbourne forums is combined with our Annual General Meeting.

Upcoming Forum:

Save the date! - Reconciliation Victoria AGM and Forum: Saturday 7 November: held virtually via Zoom, guest speakers to be announced soon

Past Forums:
October 2019 - AGM and Reconciliation Forum

It was another great day at 2019's AGM & Reconciliation Forum! Thank you Uncle Jim Berg and the other members of the Cultural Council, Uncle Ron for welcoming us to Wurundjeri Country, young Wurundjeri woman Chenile Chandler for sharing her language and gifted voice in song, moderator Charles Pakana and all our guest speakers for taking the time to share their perspectives. Please click here to see the bios of the guests who joined us.

It was a day full of respectful, robust discussion focussed on unpacking what Treaty, Statement from the Heart and Self-Determination in the midst of ongoing injustice means for the reconciliation movement. An important conversation that needs to continue.

A big thank you to everyone who helped make the day happen. A special thank you to our amazing volunteers who helped all parts of the event run smoothly.

We're looking forward to our next forum in 2020!

Forum Toolkit

Reconciliation Victoria developed a resource for non-Aboriginal people to understand the diversity of voices within Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities and how non-Aboriginal people's actions should be informed by these voices amidst a changing reconciliation landscape.
The toolkit was developed based on discussions with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander guest speakers at our October 2019 State Reconciliation Forum.

Access the toolkit here.
