Yarn bark is an Indigenous led organisation that promotes community control and self determination through surfacing Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander knowledge and values and embedding them across all aspects of program functions. We thrive of creating content that is relatable and inspiring, creating opportunities that influence the personal and skills development of current and future generations of Indigenous leaders.
Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultural knowledge and young Indigenous Peoples are at the front and centre of how we move forward as a nation; creating a world that Indigenous people have an active, determining voice that is fundamental to shaping systems that influence our future.
Generating personal and skill development opportunities that empower a community of young Indigenous people to draw strength from their cultural foundations, while capturing stories of the past and present, supporting the continuation and evolution of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander culture. Collectively using our knowledge to improve a Nations appreciation and understanding of our First Nations Peoples.
