Event description




The Australian Institute of Architects is proud to present ‘Reconciliation Conversations’ — a day of provocations, policy and project conversations focused on progressing reconciliation within the architectural profession in New South Wales and across Australia.

This year’s Reconciliation Week theme, ‘Grounded in Truth: Walk Together in Courage’, provides a fitting backdrop for the NSW Chapter’s first Reconciliation Week Forum, curated by the Chapter’s recently formed Reconciliation Working Group.

Speakers will:

  • Challenge the current frameworks within which we operate

  • Discuss education, legislation and policy drivers shaping how architects engage in this space

  • Examine what reconciliation activities look like within a project context.

Participants and industry leaders will then join us in exploring what reconciliation might look like for architecture — and how we might go about getting there as individuals, practices and as a profession, culminating in the launch of the NSW Chapter’s inaugural Reconciliation Prize.

'At the heart of reconciliation is the relationship between the broader Australian community and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. To foster positive race relations, our relationship must be grounded in a foundation of truth.

'Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples have long called for a comprehensive process of truth-telling about Australia’s colonial history. Our nation’s past is reflected in the present, and will continue to play out in future unless we heal historical wounds.'
