Celebrate National Reconciliation Week 2024 in Port Lincoln

Published 16th May 2024

The community is invited to celebrate National Reconciliation Week (NRW) 2024 in Port Lincoln at a morning tea with arts activities at the Port Lincoln Library and screenings of Nunga Screen, a state-wide short film collection, showing at the Nautilus Theatre later this month.

National Reconciliation Week runs from 27 May to 3 June and the theme this year is “Now More Than Ever”.

Mayor Diana Mislov said National Reconciliation Week serves as an opportune time for collective learning and engagement, strengthening our relationships and advancing the ongoing journey of reconciliation.

“Marking National Reconciliation Week with local events and gatherings is reflective of the importance our Council and community place on our reconciliation journey.”

“I invite the community to come along to Nunga Screen and the morning tea, and later this year, to look out for more great events that will be held to celebrate NAIDOC Week in July – these are all significant events on our community’s calendar,“ said Mayor Mislov.

The NRW morning tea is free to attend and will be held at the Port Lincoln Library on Wednesday 29 May 2024 at 11.30am, with art activities delivered by a local First Nations artist and supported by Country Arts SA. The art activities will be suitable for children and adults alike and will follow on from Port Lincoln Library’s weekly Story Time session (Wednesdays at 10.30am) for pre-schoolers and their families.

On Wednesday 29 May 2024, Nunga Screen returns to the Nautilus Arts Centre. Nunga Screen shares and celebrates First Nations culture, stories, and language through a program of short films by First Nations creatives, featuring inspiring documentaries, compelling dramas, quirky animation, contemporary and traditional storytelling. Two screenings will be conducted for Eyre Peninsula schools to attend during the day, with a public screening of the full program being held at 7pm. The public screening is free, but bookings are essential and can be made online via the Nautilus Arts Centre website at www.nautilusartscentre.com.au or by phoning the Box Office on (08) 8621 2351.

More information about NRW can be found on the Reconciliation Australia’s website.
