NAIDOC Week 2016: Yarning History

  July 3, 2016 - July 9, 2016

Exhibition

Overview

Yarning History was an outdoor yarn exhibition installed on the trees surrounding the museum at its beautiful hilltop location on Pantops mountain. The title of the exhibition, Yarning History, is a pun: “yarning” is Australian slang for telling a story, but in this case it also describes the materials that make up the exhibition. Highlighting significant dates from 40,000 BCE to the present, this exhibition was an opportunity for the local community to learn about Indigenous art and history. More than seventy knitters participated.
