On Saturday 27 October, around 80 people, including RecVic members and friends, gathered on Wurundjeri Country at Darebin Parklands in Alphington to reflect on the past year of activity in the reconciliation space, to celebrate Culture in Victoria and to vote on the start of a new era for Reconciliation Victoria.
The day included:
- A campfire discussion with local Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander community members sharing their ideas on the proposal to establish an “Aboriginal Knowledge Council”
- Guided walks on the Spiritual Healing Trail led by Uncle Trevor Gallagher
- A moving performance by Wergaia & Wempa Wempa singer-songwriter Alice Skye
- Our AGM and a Special General Meeting that endorsed the proposed rule changes including a shift to skills-based Board.
