National Reconciliation Week: Yarning circle


Come celebrate National Reconciliation Week at Prahran Square and join the Indigenous Yarning Circle led by Wurundjeri Elders, Aunty Diane Kerr and Aunty Gail Smith.

What is a Yarning circle?

A Yarning Circle is a place to talk, share, discuss and educate. A place to have a yarn together and build respectful relationships. Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples have been using yarning circles for thousands of years.

This year’s National Reconciliation theme is ‘Be Brave. Make change.’ Challenging all Australians (individuals, families, communities, organisations and Government) to ‘Be Brave’ and tackle the unfinished business of reconciliation so we can ‘Make Change’ for the benefit of all Australians.

The afternoon celebrations will be held from 1 to 4pm and include:

  • An Acknowledgement of Country by the Mayor
  • Welcome to Country
  • Smoking Ceremony
  • Jewellery making workshop
  • City of Stonnington Reconciliation information stand
  • National Reconciliation Week display on The Pipes.

This is a free event.

National Reconciliation Week will run from 27 May to 3 June 2022.
