The City of Kalgoorlie-Boulder will proudly host a week-long series of free public events for this year’s National Reconciliation Week.

Events and activities will include First Nations story time and crafts at the William Grundt Memorial Library, historical displays, and exhibitions at the Boulder Town Hall and Library.

Senior residents can get involved in a ‘milbini’ sand storytelling activity facilitated by artists Edie Ulrich and Majorie Stubss at the Eastern Goldfields Community Centre.

The Goldfields Oasis will welcome First Nations artist Gavin Murray, who will create a sand drawing experience for children on Saturday, 1 June (Oasis creche fees apply).

This year the City is also a proud sponsor of the National Reconciliation Week Breakfast at the Goldfields Arts Centre, presented by Reconciliation Australia and the Goldfields Aboriginal Business Chamber.

The week-long schedule of events will conclude with free AFL workshops at the Goldfields Oasis, facilitated by West Coast Eagles Community Coordinator, Gabby Morgan.

Mayor Wilson said the City meets regularly with the Reconciliation Working Group to ensure programs and initiatives support outcomes as part of the City’s Reconciliation Action Plan.

“Each year, the City develops a range of activities across our community facilities that cater to all age groups and, where possible, are free of charge.”

“This year, events will be held across our facilities, providing residents an opportunity to learn more about reconciliation and strengthen relationships across our community.”

“We’re proud to once again join other Local Government areas in supporting Reconciliation WA’s Street Banner program showcasing Reconciliation Week street banners on Hannan and Burt Streets.”

“Throughout this Reconciliation Week, I encourage all residents to get involved and acknowledge the contributions made by First Nations people in our community.”

A full schedule of events is available on the City of Kalgoorlie-Boulder’s website.
