To celebrate National Reconciliation Week, the Department coordinates the Street Banner Project which promotes reconciliation through banners, sponsored by organisations, being placed in prominent locations across Western Australia.
Since 2011, the Department has facilitated this project with the support of a growing number of organisations. This year, over 150 organisations are involved in sponsoring 360 reconciliation banners. The Project has also expanded to include the Cities of Armadale, Bunbury, Cockburn, Gosnells, Greater Geraldton, Kalgoorlie-Boulder, Perth, South Perth, Subiaco, Swan, Vincent and Shires of Bassendean, Broome and Victoria Park.
This project offers a positive contribution towards reconciliation and provides the perfect opportunity for organisations to recognise the significant place of Aboriginal people within our community. The Department encourages all corporate, government and non-government organisations and small businesses to sponsor a reconciliation banner.
