Reconciliation and the celebration of the Perth region’s Indigenous cultures are foundational values of Committee for Perth. Our commitment to reconciliation principles – through research, advocacy and relationship building – has been guided by our cultural advisor Richard Walley OAM.

For example, we have advocated for an Indigenous cultural centre since 2008, when our “A Cultural Compact for Western Australia: the 10 Year Challenge” research report called for a World Centre for Indigenous Culture to be developed on a central site on the Swan River.

We published our first Reconciliation Action Plan in December 2010. Committee for Perth belongs to the Reconciliation Australia community, with 2450 organisations, and a proud member of Reconciliation WA.
