National Reconciliation Week at CIT 2022
Published: 17 May 2022
You are invited to attend National Reconciliation Week events at CIT from Friday 27 May to Thursday 2 June. This year the National Reconciliation Week 2022 theme, "Be Brave. Make Change." is a challenge to all Australians - individuals, families, communities, organisations and government - to Be Brave and tackle the unfinished business of reconciliation so we can Make Change for the benefit of all Australians.
This is a time to learn about our shared histories, cultures, and achievements. Events across CIT campuses include a Welcome to Country, Smoking Ceremony, snacks with Indigenous themes, painting, a Reconciliation treasure hunt and a plant identification and tree planting stand. We will also be running free Introduction to Cultural Awareness workshops after the main celebrations to encourage the community to "Be Brave. Make Change.".
