Reconciliation Action Plan

The Reconciliation Action Plan Working Group carries out the commitments made in the Old Parliament House Reconciliation Action Plan. Activities undertaken by the working group in 2018–19 included:

  • producing a blog for NAIDOC Week, focusing on the works of two female Aboriginal artists, Leah King-Smith and Andrea Fisher, in the museum’s collection
  • running the Indigenous Experiences of Democracy tour of Old Parliament House during National Reconciliation Week and as a booked tour for groups as needed
  • ensuring that the Reconciliation Action Plan Working Group included Indigenous representation
  • drafting and reviewing the new Reflect Reconciliation Action Plan 2019–20, with sign-off by Reconciliation Australia in March 2019
  • including a warning to Indigenous viewers about possibly difficult content on the opening page of the museum’s website, and an acknowledgement of country in the museum’s e-signatures
  • working towards integrating content on Indigenous subjects throughout the museum’s exhibitions and events.
