    Sea of Hands

    When: From 10:00 AM on 22 May 2017, to 8:00 PM on 5 Jun 2017
    Location: Preston Library
    Visit the Sea of Hands at Preston Library during National Reconciliation Week.  Planting a Sea of Hands is an act of recognition – of identities, cultures and history. The first Sea of Hands was held in 1997 in front of Parliament House, Canberra. It was created as a powerful physical representation of the Citizen’s Statement on Native Title.

    Take a few moments for contemplation in the library courtyard and add your own message of support for reconciliation, rights and respect. Sea of Hands is an ANTaR campaign.
