What is the City of Adelaide Vision for Reconciliation?
The City of Adelaide values its culturally diverse community and is committed to extending the process of Aboriginal reconciliation in partnership with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. The six guiding principles are: Participation, Negotiation, Communication and Public Awareness, Service Provision, Cultural Identity and Heritage and Commemoration.
Why have the room located in the Town Hall?
The current Exhibition Room was chosen as the site for a Reconciliation Room because of its accessibility and prominence, situated just through the main entrance doors on King William Street.
What are Council’s reconciliation assets?
Reconciliation Vision Statement and National Sorry Day Acknowledgment, currently located in the Council Chamber
Kadlitpinna and Kuri Dance, replica Aboriginal paintings by George French Angas currently located in the Queen Adelaide Room
Collections of reconciliation event photography e.g. NAIDOC Week
Reconciliation commissioned artwork
What happens to my feedback?
Stakeholder feedback will be used to inform a Business Case to determine options for and if a Reconciliation Room is feasible. This Business Case will include design options, potential partners for delivery and options for on-going maintenance and management.
It is anticipated that the Business Case will be presented to Council’s Reconciliation Committee meeting, 20 November 2013, for the Committee’s consideration and possible recommendation to Council.
Council’s Reconciliation Committee meetings are held in the Colonel Light Room, Town Hall, Adelaide.
Agendas, Reports and Attachments for ordinary meetings of Council Reconciliation Committee are available for viewing on the Adelaide City Council website by 5.00pm on the Friday evening prior to the Wednesday meeting.
A summary of the Business Case will be made available online at yoursay.adelaidecitycouncil.com and emailed/posted directly to individuals and organisations anticipating Council’s endorsement on the 26 November 2013.
Council would be seeking partnerships for content should the Reconciliation Room proceed.
If your feedback has indicated you or your organisation would like to be involved we will seek further communication.
