The Broome Rec­on­cil­i­a­tion Fes­ti­val 2018 is pre­sented by the Shire of Broome and Yawuru, with fund­ing sup­port from Health­way. Na­tional Rec­on­cil­i­a­tion Week runs from 27 May to 3 June and aims to help Aus­tralians learn more about Abo­rig­i­nal and Tor­res Strait Is­lander cul­tures and his­to­ries, to share that knowl­edge and help Aus­tralia grow as a na­tion. The theme for the Broome Rec­on­cil­i­a­tion Fes­ti­val 2018 is: “A com­mu­nity cel­e­brat­ing to­gether is a com­mu­nity

grow­ing to­gether,” and will fea­ture per­for­mances by John Bennett, Stephen Pi­gram, Yatan­gal fea­tur­ing Mervyn Mu­lardy, StiX and TriX, Sea­side Drifters, Lyri­cal In­stinct, Wasamba, St Mary’s Col­lege Dancers and Stu­dio 34 as well Kim­ber­ley Girls, mar­ket stalls, food vans and more. Broome Shire Pres­i­dent, Harold Tracey, says the Rec­on­cil­i­a­tion Fes­ti­val will be an im­por­tant oc­ca­sion and he en­cour­ages com­mu­nity mem­bers of all ages to at­tend. “Our aim is to put on a fun fes­ti­val, while at the same time bringing the com­mu­nity to­gether to cel­e­brate our town’s unique cul­tural her­itage,” Cr Tracey says.

Stephen Pi­gram is one of the head­line per­form­ers for Fri­day’s Broome Rec­on­cil­i­a­tion Fes­ti­val.
