Walk for Reconciliation 2018

On Friday 01 June UCW had around 24 people participate in the Walk for Reconciliation event in the city.

For UCW participants the walk started at the Inner City Service Centre where Gayle Mitchell and Jane Hulands and the staff at ICSC had organised a morning tea. People who access Tranby and ICSC services were invited to join the morning tea and everyone mingled in anticipation of the event.

It was a great mix of staff and clients and the feeling of breaking down barriers was palpable.

The group then made their way down to Elizabeth Quay to listen to the speeches and enjoy the Noongar performances. Followed by a walk around the Quay looking at installations about he Noongar Six Seasons.

The vibe in the Quay was one of hope and celebration. The Police were there to show their support and participate in the event and even had one of the police cars painted by artist Bradley Kickett. (See his fabulous police car designs here).

The event was the biggest yet and everyone is hoping it will just get bigger with more learning and understanding as we all journey together.

A big thank you to GayleJane and ICSC for hosting the morning tea and encouraging staff and clients to participate in the Walk for Reconciliation event.
