Reconciliation Week is celebrated annually from 27 May to 3 June and recognises the importance of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander histories, cultures and achievements. The Street Banner Project displays hundreds of banners, sponsored by organisations, in prominent locations across Western Australia.
Once again, DLGSC is excited to partner with Reconciliation WA to deliver the project with the support of a growing number of organisations and local governments. This positive contribution towards reconciliation provides your organisation or business the opportunity to acknowledge the significant place of Aboriginal people and culture within our community.
