Sea of Hands for National Week of Reconciliation
National Reconciliation Week (NRW) is a time for all Australians to learn about our shared histories, cultures, and achievements, and to explore how each of us can contribute to achieving reconciliation in Australia.
In recognition of NRW, Samaritans is holding Sea of Hands events across our some of our regions throughout the week.
The Sea of Hands is one of ANTaR’s major reconciliation community campaigns. The hands symbolise community support for reconciliation, rights and respect. Planting a sea of hands is an act of recognition – of identities, cultures and history.
Our Sea of Hands events will kick off in Newcastle at Christ Church Cathedral on Tuesday May 28th at 12:00pm.
Samaritans will also lay the Sea of Hands at Wallsend Parish on Thursday May 30.
