Welcome to the City of Adelaide's Reconciliation Room – Mankurri-api Kuu.

Mankurri-api Kuu: To speak friendly together.

Officially launched on the 4 November 2015, Mankurri-api Kuu is the first Reconciliation Room in Australia.

Acknowledgement of Country

City of Adelaide acknowledges that we are meeting on the traditional country of the Kaurna people of the Adelaide Plains and pays respect to Elders past and present. We recognise and respect their cultural heritage, beliefs and relationship with the land. We acknowledge that they are of continuing importance to the Kaurna people living today. Council also acknowledges other Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander language groups in the city and works closely with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities to advance reconciliation in the city.

We welcome Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander community groups to register to use Mankurri-api Kuu for free on weekdays from 9am to 5pm. The room is available on weekends on application. Community groups and organisations whose objectives are in line with advocating reconciliation are welcome to hire Mankurri-api Kuu, with not for profit and corporate rates available on request. 

Mankurri-api Kuu has a seating capacity of 10 people (Boardroom) or 20 people (Theatre). It provides for an intimate, unique experience.
