Every year, Maroondah City Council celebrates Reconciliation Week between 27 May and 3 June.

These dates commemorate two significant milestones in the Reconciliation journey — the successful 1967 referendum, and the High Court Mabo decision respectively. National Reconciliation Week is a time for people of all ages to come together and strengthen relationships between Indigenous and non-Indigenous people. 

Reconciliation Week event details

In 2022, Maroondah is celebrating Dancing with Creation, a series of public art works in the heart of the Ringwood East shopping centre in the laneway park at 24 Railway Avenue.

Created by Gunnai/Gunditjmarra/Yorta Yorta/Wiradjuri artist Robert Young, Wurundjeri/Yorta Yorta artist Simone Thomson, Bunurong/Yorta Yorta artist Chris Hume and the Mullum Mullum Indigenous Gathering Place (MMIGP) community Dancing with Creation was supported by a collaboration between MMIGP, Maroondah City Council and Ringwood East Traders Association. The event will include a performance by Eastwood Primary School choir with Aunty Irene Norman.

Performances by Amos Roach, an award-winning musician and proud Djab Wurrung/Gunditj Mara and Ngarrindjeri man and dance group Bandok Tati will start at 11.15am. Following their performance, Bandok Tati will lead a dance workshop.
