2018 will see the development of the City of Kalamunda’s first Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP), marking their contribution towards reconciliation in Australia.
A RAP is recognised as a significant commitment towards building better awareness, understanding and relationships between the wider Australian community and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people for the benefit of all Australians.
Mayor John Giardina said, “There has been an ongoing commitment to supporting NAIDOC/Makaru events in the City, with a focus on culture, music and the arts at our events and dedicated art galleries.”
“The development of a RAP is important to the City of Kalamunda as we believe in a united, prospering community.”
As the City’s first RAP, it will focus on building foundations for relationships, respect and opportunities and support the City’s Strategic Community Plan.
Engagement with Indigenous people who live in the City of Kalamunda and the wider community will play an integral role in its development.
Development is expected to get underway in the coming months. Further information on the RAP is available here
