Reconciliation week, held on 27 May – 3 June, marks the anniversary of the Australian referendum in 1967, celebrating the culture and history of the Indigenous people in Australia. This year’s theme for National Reconciliation Week – In this together – is now resonating in ways that could not have been foreseen when it was announced last year, but it reminds us whether in a crisis or in reconciliation we are all #InThisTogether.
MSWPS wishes to acknowledge with respect and continuing spiritual connection to All Women of Good Will who have gone before us on this land.
To acknowledge indigenous women artists at this time, this news item features the artwork of MSWPS Member,Mandy Brown.
