Description

12-1pm Saturday 27th October 2018

Join us for the second in a series of Yarning Circles as part of the public program to accompany UTS Gallery's current exhibition 'Void' curated by Emily McDaniel.

Led by exhibition curator Emily McDaniel, a limited number of participants will be guided in a culturally safe space to explore Indigenous knowledges and ways of knowing.

Yarning is a means of conversation — but more than just a conversation, it’s a culturally comfortable, relaxed and informal passing of stories or knowledge. It is a powerful way in which Aboriginal people connect with each other. There are many different reasons for having a yarn, be that to make laws, solve a problem, discuss a shared experience, or connect with friends and family. - http://www.utsdesignindex.com/researchmethod/yarning/
