National Reconciliation Week at CIT 2023
Published: 18 May 2023
You are invited to attend National Reconciliation Week events at CIT. This year the National Reconciliation Week 2023 theme, 'Be a Voice for Generations', encourages all Australians to be a voice for reconciliation in tangible ways in our everyday lives - where we live, work and socialise.
This is a time to learn about our shared histories, cultures, and achievements. Events across CIT campuses include a Welcome to Country, Smoking Ceremony, student yarning circles, Indigenous performances and snacks with Indigenous themes. Activities will vary per campus.
We encourage all students, staff and members of the community to join us for one or all of our events:
- Tuesday 30 May 12-2pm - CIT Bruce outside Café Yala
- Wednesday 31 May 12-2pm - CIT Reid Quadrangle
- Thursday 1 June 9-10:30am - CIT Fyshwick outside Café Yala
The Yarning Circle is a chance for everyone to have a yarn and be listened to. The topic for the Yarning Circle will be this year’s National Reconciliation Week theme: Be a Voice for Generations.
