RECONCILIATION PLACE, CANBERRA

Since its commissioning by the Commonwealth Government in 2000, Reconciliation Place in Canberra has brought together the shared aspirations of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and non-Indigenous Australians around the theme of reconciliation. The artworks featured in the space provide a journey through the history, current life and future aspirations of Australia. Some of the quotes featured in the artworks are included here as they echo many of the aspirations for Australian progress collected in the consultation.

‘Life is about...getting up...helping each other and doing the best we can, to raise people out of their misery.’ Dr Faith Bandler AM, interview with Robin Hughes, 1993
