The Monash Reconciliation Group (MRG) was formed by residents in 2009 on the invitation of Reconciliation Victoria (Rec Vic) and Monash City Council (Ref. the Rec Vic MRG Formation Letter of April 2009).
Each year the MRG organises local meetings and exhibitions in the City of Monash, an eastern suburb of Melbourne. Typically MRG mounts a Reconciliation Week Exhibition in May – June and a NAIDOC Week exhibition in July at The Highway Gallery in Mount Waverley. We also participate in the Reconciliation Eastern Metro (REM) meetings with Reconciliation groups of Knox, Manningham, Maroondah, Mullum-Mullum, Nillumbik, Whitehorse and Yarra Ranges (previously ‘Casey’). For contacts with these groups check the Reconciliation Victoria web site under Local Groups.
