National Reconciliation Week—held every year from 27 May to 3 June— It is a time for all Australians to learn about our shared histories, cultures, and achievements, and to explore how each of us can contribute to achieving reconciliation in Australia.

The theme for 2023 Reconciliation Week is “Be a voice for generations” and Delma Dorman (Kunkari/Pitjantjatjara), Community Development Officer with Encircle filmed an interview with elders Brenda Holt Kanofski (Bidjara/Wakka Wakka) and Julie Wilson (Tiwi/Waigate NT) about Close the Gap, which is an initiative to improve life outcomes for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people in key target areas. Please watch the video for some great insights and information.
