Geelong Online Exhibition Celebrating Reconciliation Week

National Reconciliation Week is on from 27 May to 3 June. This year’s theme is In this together.

National Reconciliation Week encourages Australians to learn about our shared histories, cultures, and achievements and explore how each of us can contribute to achieving reconciliation.

This year, City of Greater Geelong has partnered with a number of local organisations to present the online exhibition Ngal-Ngal-La, which is a Wadawurrung word for ‘reconciliation’.

The exhibition features paintings created by Aboriginal Australian artists from prisons on Wadawurrung country, as part of The Torch program. While the artworks are typically projected on to City Hall, coronavirus (COVID-19) restrictions have led to the display moving online.

The online art exhibition is a joint project of the City of Greater Geelong together with Wathaurung Aboriginal Corporation, Wathaurong Aboriginal Co-operative, Department of Justice and Community Safety, The Torch and The Colac Aboriginal Gathering Place.
