Reconciliation Australia Launches National Reconciliation Week Campaign Via Carbon Creative

Reconciliation Australia and Carbon Creative will launch National Reconciliation Week 2022 tomorrow, Friday, 27 May (running through to 3 June) with the theme ‘Be brave. Make change.’

The theme and campaign, developed by social change creative agency Carbon Creative in collaboration with emerging Torres Strait Visual Artist Tori-Jay Mordey, challenges all Australians—individuals, families, communities, organisations, and governments — to stand up, be brave, and help tackle the unfinished business of reconciliation. Bidjara and Māori (Ngāti Porou and Te Arawa) actor, Deborah Mailman, lends her voice to the TVC and radio.

Karen Mundine, proud Bundjalung woman, CEO of Reconciliation Australia, said, “This year we want to remind Australia that reconciliation is everyone’s business, and not just during National Reconciliation Week, but every day, every week, of every year. Our 2022 theme reminds us that the real work of reconciliation happens in our everyday actions and interactions – how we carry ourselves and our relationships with the people and places around us.”

Wayne Denning, proud Birri and Guugu Yimidhirr man, Managing Director of Carbon Creative explains, “Our goal with this campaign was to create a positive and inspiring campaign that can spur everyone to take action during National Reconciliation Week and every day beyond. It’s a visual reminder that reconciliation is everybody’s business.”

“Working on this project was a huge honour for me as a Torres Strait artist, helping to push the narrative of National Reconciliation Week, Be Brave, Make Change,” said Tori-Jay Mordey.

“It’s important to keep these discussions alive and to strive for a better future, to encourage genuine connection and push for equality and equity. We can make a change. But we can’t do it alone. Be brave, and start the conversation today.”

A national media campaign to support National Reconciliation Week launched on Monday, 23 May across TV, BVOD, radio, online, social, outdoor, and print via OMD.
