Maroondah Celebrates Reconciliation

More than a word. Reconciliation takes action. Every year, Maroondah City Council celebrates Reconciliation Week between 27 May and 3 June with a range of free events and activities.

About National Reconciliation Week

National Reconciliation Week is a time for people of all ages to come together and strengthen relationships between Indigenous and non-Indigenous people. The Maroondah community is invited to a free event celebrating a mural and pavement art created by Indigenous artists Robert Young and Simone Thomson with Mullum Mullum Indigenous Gathering Place (MMIGP), and planter boxes painted and designed by the MMIGP Men’s Group. This collaborative work is part of the Ringwood East Place Activation Project.

The event will include:

  • Smoking Ceremony and Acknowledgement of Country
  • Talks by the artists
  • Cultural display by Mullum Mullum Indigenous Gathering Place
  • Walkabout Dance and Cultural Group performance and boomerang painting workshop

This event is presented by Maroondah City Council and Mullum Mullum Indigenous Gathering Place, with support from the Ringwood East Traders Association and Maroondah Movement for Reconciliation. The Ringwood East Place Activation Project is funded by Maroondah City Council and the Victorian Government through the Office for Suburban Development, Department of Jobs, Precincts and Regions.
