Frontier wars memorial service

13 June @ 8:30 am - 1:00 pm AEST


Hosted by Kiri Bear in collaboration with Firekeepers and Initiatives of Change.

Warren Roberts, proud Thunghutti and Bundjalung man and founder of Yarn Australia, has initiated a private event at the Sydney Opera House to share stories of the frontier wars and to offer respect to the many lives that were lost through this long period of our history.

Further information about the event is available here along with an opportunity to buy a ticket, gather your people and access the livestream for yourself.

I, with support from Initiatives of Change and Firekeepers, have created an opportunity to watch the live stream of the Frontier Wars Memorial Service, in company with folks who have been participating in Yarn Australia’s Storytelling Workshops. These storytellers have been trained in cultural safety and will create a warm and friendly environment for us to share our responses to the memorial service.

Tea and coffee will be available throughout the morning and we invite you to stay for a hearty bowl of soup following the stream.

Tickets are $20, available from Humanitix.

The majority of this cost will be passed on to Yarn Australia with a small amount used to cover food, tea and coffee.
