Reconciliation Wall

‚ÄčExhibiting on the Reconciliation Wall

The Reconciliation Wall is located in the Fountain Court and is part of the Parliament's commitment to reconciliation with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people. The purpose of the Reconciliation Wall is to better engage with and promote Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander artists in New South Wales, via exhibitions of high quality art.

The Reconciliation Wall is also used from time to time to exhibit the Parliament's own Aboriginal art collection, which includes past winners of the Parliament of New South Wales Aboriginal Art Prize.

Who can apply to exhibit

The Reconciliation Wall is principally reserved for the exhibition of works by Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander artists from New South Wales and must have some connection with the Parliament or communities within the state.

Applications to use the exhibition space are invited from Aboriginal organisations, including artist groups and collectives, charitable or not-for-profit organisations, as well as exhibitions supported by government bodies.
