Sharing, talking, yarning – its an integral aspect of traditional life for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people and communities. It's said that a problem shared is a problem halved, and our Yarning Circles provide a platform for local men to meet and share their struggles and victories with each other, engaging in discussion over community issues and the importance of cultural preservation. Five Bridges currently facilitates two Yarning Circles:
Men meet with Uncle Charlie every Monday and engage in various activities such as traditional artwork, beading, music and yarning.
Yarning Circle held at 61 Wildey Street, Raceview.
Mondays from 10:30am to 12:30pm.
Men meet once a month to hold a yarning circle with a Brisbane Elder or respected community member.
Yarning Circle held at Level 7, 363 George Street, Brisbane.
Third Friday of every month from 12:00pm to 2:00pm.
