Yarning History Outdoor Exhibition

Exhibition Website

Jul 9 2016 - Sep 27 2016

Yarning History is an outdoor yarn bombing exhibition that is installed on the trees surrounding the museum at its beautiful hilltop location on Pantops mountain. “Yarning” is Australian slang for telling a story. Highlighting significant dates from 40,000 BCE to the present, this exhibition is an opportunity to learn about Indigenous art and history. 

A collaboration of over seventy knitters, this exhibition is timed to coincide with NAIDOC Week (National Aboriginal and Islander Day Observance Committee), a national week of celebration in Australia to commemorate the history, culture and achievements of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.
