Reconciliation

We are committed to fostering reconciliation between Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, and non-Indigenous Australians.

As an institution, our community partnerships and strengthening of existing relationships reaffirm our commitment to creating better education, health and wellbeing outcomes for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.

National Reconciliation Week

27 May - 3 June

National Reconciliation Week (NRW) helps us understand the need for a shared awareness and respectful relationships between Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, and non-Indigenous Australians.

The week is a time for all Australians to learn about our shared histories, cultures, and achievements, and an opportunity to examine how we can contribute to broader reconciliation across Australia.

Virtual tour of QUT Art Museum

Take a virtual tour of Rite of Passage, a group exhibition at QUT Art Museum responding to the significance of the year 2020 – 250 years since James Cook first arrived on our shores.

Reframing the way that we perceive this year in our history, the exhibition showcases the strength of autobiographical work by eleven contemporary Aboriginal artists.

The exhibition reveals how these artists define themselves as voices of their families and their ancestors in their quest to preserve their Aboriginality.
