Each yarn will be limited to 20 participants, with a $30 voucher available per person, per yarn for attending.

Applications are only open to Sistergirls, Brotherboys and trans mob (this absolutely includes non-binary mob too) across the continent.

The yarns will focus on strengthening and supporting the health, wellbeing and voices of Sistergirls, Brotherboys and trans mob across the country and offer an opportunity for the community to connect and come together.

We are keen to help build community kinship, cultural and spiritual connections through storytelling and activities.
