Early results of Reconciliation Place project

If you’ve been following this blog for a while, you’ll know I’ve been enjoying my work with the Vincent Reconciliation Group and the Town of Vincent on a community development and place making project to enhance Banks Reserve* as a place of reconciliation.

I’m excited to let you know that an early result of the community consultations we held in 2010 is that this year’s summer concert and film night at Banks Reserve has an Indigenous theme. The program includes the screening of a new short film about the wonderful Wadjuk/Noongar elder Doolann-Leisha Eatts who I quoted in my last blog post. I’m sure this will be a moving and fascinating film.

The concert and films are free and everyone is welcome to attend. The event falls on February 13th which is the anniversary of the national apology to the Stolen Generations, making it a fitting time to come together to celebrate the strength of local Aboriginal culture.

Here are all the details:

*Banks Reserve is a major park/recreation area on the river in Mt Lawley, just north of the East Perth Power Station.
