Coming Up - Yirra Yaarnz 2016

Developing upon our successful Yirra Yaarnz Readings and Q & A delivered during 2015, we will co-ordinate another new works program developed from selected members of the Yirra Yaakin Writers’ Group, followed by a Q & A session.

Yirra Yaarnz is a collection of original work from new Western Australian Aboriginal writers. Mentored and dramaturged by award-winning playwright Hellie Turner, dramaturg Polly Low and actor Geoff Kelso through Yirra Yaakin’s Writer’s Group.

These works-in-progress showcase the importance of storytelling as it relates to Aboriginal culture.
