New reconciliation resources translated into ten key languages spoken in Australian homes

·

Reconciliation Australia has worked with Cultural Perspectives, a specialist research and communications agency, to produce posters, flyers and explanatory materials promoting National Reconciliation Week (NRW) 2023 in Arabic, simplified and traditional Chinese, Greek, Italian, Korean, Punjabi, Spanish, Thai, and Vietnamese languages. 

The resources include posters and flyers and translated information on reconciliation and National Reconciliation Week. The 2023 theme urges all Australians to Be a Voice for Generations – Act now for a Reconciled Future

Reconciliation Australia Chief Executive, Karen Mundine, said her organisation recognised the importance of non-Anglo migrant communities in the Australian social and political landscape.  

“It is clear that engagement and understanding from Australia’s largest migrant communities will be critical to achieving reconciliation. All the signs suggest that these communities are strong supporters of First Nations aspirations including those addressed in the Uluru Statement from the Heart,” she said. 

“It is essential that Australia’s migrant communities understand our history and are able to make properly informed decisions about voting in the upcoming referendum.”

Just over half of Australians were either born overseas or have at least one migrant parent; nearly a quarter of Australians speak a language other than English at home.
