Change the Date

As an office we have decided to remain open on Tuesday 26th January as a reflection of our view that the date of Australia Day must change.

It’s incredible to think that it’s been five years since that first One Day concert in Fremantle, which seeded in our minds the need for a more truthful acknowledgment of our nationhood.

The recently released, ‘2021 State of Reconciliation in Australia Report’ argues that Australia needs to shift to a braver position on issues affecting Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.

In her forward, Shelley Reys AO, CEO at Arrilla Indigenous Consulting, writes:

 

'bravery… will be our change agent. Now is the time to take a deeply personal journey and have the uncomfortable conversations. And we need to extend those conversations to those within our sphere of influence, both professionally and personally.’

Something for us all to contemplate over the BBQ this weekend.
