Craft and family friendly activities are among the events being held in Brimbank to celebrate Reconciliation Week.

Brimbank council is running a number of events from May 27 to June 3, with something for everyone of all ages.

The events start with a Cary Street tree planting ceremony, in a day that will also include family friendly activities with a free barbecue and drinks. T

There will be craft sessions to learn about ancient musical instruments used by Australian First Nations people at Brimbank libraries, while children can also listen to First Nations stories and create their own Dreamtime night light .

Children can also participate in a collaborative Library Art Display, while there will be a range of First Nations craft activities to celebrate Reconciliation Week at the Brimbank Aquatic and Wellness Centre and Sunshine Leisure Centre, between 10 and 12pm.

The week will finish with a performance of the Sunshine Club. A performance set in 1946, the joyful and acclaimed musical The Sunshine Club, tells the story of Aboriginal soldier Frank Doyle, who has a strong desire to change things for the better by setting up The Sunshine Club.

It was a place where all people are welcome to come together, laugh, romance, and dance the night away.
