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 mounted a Reconciliation Week Exhibition in May – June and a NAIDOC Week exhibition in July at The Highway Gallery in Mount Waverley.   MRG also participates 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 the ACT pull-down menu and then select  Local Reconciliation Groups.  Lower down the page is the listing at  http://www.reconciliationvic.org.au/victorian-local-reconciliation-groups
