Place making for reconciliation

Are you interested in Reconciliation? Do you live or work in the Town of Vincent?

If you answered yes, then you’re invited to be part of the Reconciliation Place project at Banks Reserve in East Perth, next to the Derbaal Yerrigan (Swan River). The project aims to further develop Banks Reserve as a place of reconciliation for the Town of Vincent community, through bringing people of all backgrounds together to create community artwork that will promote reconciliation between Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal people and enhance the existing features and community uses of Banks Reserve.

The project kicked off with a very special Reconciliation Ceremony held during National Reconciliation Week in May.

The next step is a community workshop to develop a vision of how reconciliation can be celebrated in the park. Full details of the upcoming workshop are here.
