THE National Carillon in Canberra will be used as an electric canvas to project a series of narratives and imagery for National Reconciliation Week. The National Capital Authority says that each night the Carillon will showcase a different image overlaid with messages about the nation’s journey to Reconciliation. A highlight tomorrow (Friday, May 29) will be an image reflecting the three themes of the Uluru Statement from the Heart created by the ACT Reconciliation Council. The projections will run from 6pm to 11pm until Wednesday, June 3. Those outside Canberra can view the footage here.
