Reconciliation Week Street Banner Program
Each year, thanks to the support and sponsorship of participating organisations, hundreds of Reconciliation Week banners in prominent locations across Western Australia fly proud and high, featuring a chosen artwork by a Western Australian Aboriginal Artist.
National Reconciliation Week (NRW) is celebrated annually from 27 May to 3 June and is a time for all Australians to learn about our shared histories, cultures, and achievements, and to explore how each of us can contribute to achieving a more reconciled Australia.
Initiated by Bringing Them Home WA and the Department of Aboriginal Affairs in 2011, the Reconciliation Week Street Banner Program increases the awareness of NRW throughout Western Australia.
Reconciliation WA has proudly accepted stewardship of the successful state-wide program.
With the support of a growing number of organisations and local governments the Reconciliation Week Street Banner Program offers a positive contribution towards reconciliation and provides the opportunity for your organisation to acknowledge the significant place of Aboriginal people and culture within our community.
2023 sponsorships are now open!

Jartuti - Beverley Rogers
About the 2023 Street Banner Artwork
“Jartuti water place east of Parnngurr. In pujiman (traditonal, desert dwelling) days old people walked and hunted there, we went there recently with KJ (Kanyirninpa Jukurrpa) ranger mob, lovely place.” – Beverley Rogers
Jartu is a water source located close to Parnngurr Aboriginal Community (otherwise known as Cotton Creek), and is part of Beverley’s father’s ngurra (home Country, camp). The site is near to the home of the jangara (cannibal devil), spiritual beings from the Jukurrpa (Dreaming) era.
Martumili Arists was established in late 2006 and supports Martu artsts in Kunawarritji, Punmu, Parnngurr, Jigalong, Warralong, Irrungadji (Nullagine) and Parnpajinya (Newman).
