Centralian Yarns

Hosted by:

Local history in a global context

Centralian Yarns shares Central Australia’s hidden histories, the forgotten histories, the histories which exist in people’s conversations, some very recent histories. These stories are our stories, they may emerge from a song, a poem, an object, a fragile memory … from the little known to the iconic, Central Australia has much to share with ourselves and with others.

These stories may be geographically specific but you will find connections to your own lives and experience, and we hope they will also fill some gaps in knowledge locally, in the NT and beyond.
