2018 HART Awards – Nominations Now Open!

The 2018 HART Awards (Helping Achieve Reconciliation Together) – now in their fifth year – recognise local governments and community organisations that are advancing reconciliation in Victoria.

Nominations for the 2018 HART Awards – Now Open!

Reconciliation Victoria, in partnership with VLGA and supported by Bank Australia and Local Government Victoria, presents the 5th annual HART Awards. These Awards recognise Victorian initiatives that contribute to local reconciliation outcomes.

Nominations could be initiatives that demonstrate Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal people working together, and initiatives that have contributed to relationships, respect and understanding. The HART Awards will be presented at an event in Melbourne on Friday 1 June 2018, during National Reconciliation Week.

Winners will receive an award. The community organisation winner will also be awarded a prize of $1000 to support their reconciliation initiatives.

The short-listed and winning initiatives will be profiled in a booklet and promoted on the websites of Reconciliation Victoria, VLGA, Local Government Victoria and Bank Australia to provide inspiration for other organisations and communities.
