INDIGENOUS CONNECT | YARN AUSTRALIA
Yarn strives to break down the divide between Indigenous and Non Indigenous Australians by providing a safe space where discussions and relationships can be built. We believe if we do not provide the opportunity for all Australians to engage with Indigenous culture, through a meaningful and respectful space Indigenous culture will be lost. To inspire our future leaders our program was established at Australian Universities, those students at University will shape the nation’s future. Our future leaders will be making the tough decision in 20 years’ time. By providing an opportunity to engage with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people we all can help shape the nation’s future together.
We are young Australians who are raising awareness of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Island people and their culture, through the right resources like books, articles, and most importantly the power of individual stories.
YARN Australia began as a University based program and is now expanding into the wider community, business sector and other educational institutions.
