Yarning Circle, a place to gather, to sing, to share stories, around a campfire. All welcome.


19 Aug 2016 | 5:30 - 6:30pm

As part of The Arts and Refugees Forum | 19 - 20 August 

Gather around the fire, on Cabrogal land, under the stars, beside the great river that runs through Darug country. To ‘yarn’ is to share a story with friends; to weave stories of the land, the people and the cultures together around a fire. Join with local Elders to share a story of culture and connection. Bring a song to share, your music and your stories. Yarning Circle celebrates First Nations’ connection to the land and welcomes artists and local people, refugees and asylum seekers to the Georges River, to share journey stories, stories of friendship, longing and belonging. Food and drink will be served around a fire-bucket. 

Storytellers include: Uncle Wes Marne, Bee Cruse, Binowi, Billy MacPherson and Uncle Stephen Williams

Produced by CuriousWorks with Heartdancers
