Postcards from the Future

Creating postcards from the future is an excellent way to explore this years theme, and could easily become some students writing and/or art entry.

We encourage students to be brave and imagine their ideal reconciled Australia, via creative imagery and in words.

This activity requires some knowledge of what reconciliation means and should follow at least one of the themed activities or a discussion based on our research and reconciliation pages.

These postcards may become your Art Entry or your Writing Entry.

Even if they don’t,  we would love to see and read them.

Send them to us via email or to

Step 1: Imagine

Imagine you are living in a future Australia that has achieved reconciliation. Send a postcard , write a letter, poem or short story to your friends and family letting them know what it’s like and how it’s different it is from what it used to be. Share your vision for Australia, what does it look like, how does it feel, what’s changed? Feel free to express your vision of Australia in words, colours, images and drawings too.
