Yarn Up Cards: Resource to support conversations around Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultural identity and strengths

Nov 27, 2020

Queensland Child and Family Commission have released a resource designed and developed by Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people to assist conversations around family and culture. 

The “Yarn Up” cards can be used in schools men’s and women’s yarning circles, community groups and workplaces to encourage people to explore their cultural identity and recognise their strengths.

The “Yarn Up” cards came from the Garbutt Community Centre's Tiddas Yarning Circle and were developed as a tool to get people talking about their family and connections, which is particularly important when working with First Nations young people.    

There have been a limited number of “Yarn Up” card sets printed, which you can order through the project team at Queensland Child and Family Commision or you can download a set from their website.

To find out more go to the “Yarn Up” cards page on the Queensland Family and Child Commission website.
