YarnHeart – bringing together stories and hearts from across Australia


Binky Collective and Darwin Festival are proud to present YarnHeart, a wonderful tactile, fun and colourful installation at the Bagot Aboriginal Community Festival, I Heart Bagot on 16 and 17 August, that brings together stories and handmade hearts from across Australia.

YarnHeart connects you and your community to Bagot Communityy through sharing a  simple symbol of happiness and talking about the things we love in the places we live. These simple acts connect us, heart-to-heart, to our shared experiences as human beings. Make a heart in any way – be creative. Pop it in the mail. Tell us what you’re grateful for in your community. In exchange, you will receive a portrait from a Bagot Community member featuring your very own heart, with their personal grateful message. The YarnHeart exchange will be published online and the hearts will feature as an installation at the festival. So get yarning!
