Western Australians are encouraged to join the digital celebration of Reconciliation Week 2020, as COVID-19 reminds us that, more than ever, we are 'In this together'.

The national celebration of Reconciliation Week starts tomorrow Wednesday 27 May and runs until Wednesday 3 June.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, large public gatherings have been replaced with immersive online content, including storytelling and videos, to empower Australians to understand and better participate in truth telling.

Reconciliation WA has compiled a video series called Reconciliation Conversations, which features prominent Aboriginal Western Australians including Des Headland, Tui Raven, Richard Walley, Robyn Smith-Walley and Aboriginal Affairs Minister Ben Wyatt.

This year's theme, 'In this together', is a theme that Western Australians have embraced during the COVID-19 pandemic.

In a remarkable display of mutual respect and collaboration, industry, governments, Aboriginal communities and individuals have over the past three months partnered to protect Aboriginal communities from the spread of COVID-19.

To read more from the Premier and Minister for Aboriginal Affairs, see their joint statement.
