Yirramboi is partnering with Queen Victoria Women's Centre for this series of talks and workshops

Yirramboi festival is collaborating with Queen Victoria Women's Centre this May to host a series of talk, workshops and exhibitions. Women's Healing Place brings together four First Nations women to explore identity, culture, trauma, self-care and healing through mediums like visual arts, storytelling, yarning, song and movement. 

There are three one-off events to watch out for, plus an exhibition by digital finger artist Alkina Edwards. Events happening as part of the series include a yarning circle with Gunditjmara, Mutthi Mutthi and Nari Nari woman Nolita Edwards; a workshop with Yorta Yorta, Bangerang, Gunaikurnai, Warlpiri and Wurundjeri woman Nartarsha Bamblett about Indigenous culture, country, and understanding; and a discussion with Yorta Yorta woman Yolanda Finette about the importance of holistic self-care.

All events are $10, with entry to Alkina Edwards' exhibition free.
