Aboriginal artists will be featured online over the next six nights, from Tuesday, May 26 to Sunday, May 31, as part of Reconcilliation Week activities.

Country Arts SA will feature an artist's profile on its Facebook page each night at 7pm, as part of a week of online activities.

Cultural programming manager Samantha Yates said Reconciliation Australia's theme - In This Together - is resonating in ways which could not have been foreseen when it was announced it last year.

"We all have a role to play when it comes to reconciliation, and in playing our part we collectively build relationships that value Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, histories, cultures, and futures," she said.

"These interviews highlight some of our great regional artists and gives us a snippet of what they are feeling at a time when we would normally all be together."

The schedule for Aboriginal artist profile on the Country Arts Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/CountryArtsSA/) at 7pm is:

Tuesday, May 26: Sorry Day - Mandy Brown (Adelaide Hills)
