Reconciliation Action Plan
- Reconciliation Action Plan 2018
First Nations songs, stories and languages have echoed across this land for millennia. Recognising the importance of this continued culture, Red Room Poetry aims to celebrate and nurture opportunities for First Nations voices, expression and language-learning through community-led poetic arts projects. We recognise the path to reconciliation can only be achieved with collective effort, and acknowledge the work and vision of others in this shared journey.
