The Gulbangali Dharug Nura Project: Womens & Mens Cultural Yarning Circles
We as descendants of nura and as descendants of her children, wish to contribute to her entire story through an artistic lens, revegetation and rejuvenation. Join us to connect with the artist in a cultural yarning circle. Women will learn about traditional weaving techniques and yarn about culture. Men will learn about traditional tools and yarn about country. Groups will then come together to talk about fire management and revegetation.
