Deadly Djurumin and Parlour are delighted to present a series of yarns from the perspective of First Nations women. Held on the first Friday of each month, the yarns are convened by Sarah Lynn Rees and Danièle Hromek. We look forward to seeing you there!

Watch Sarah and Danièle chat about the aims and intent of the Deadly Djurumin Yarns, and discuss their motivations for establishing Deadly Djurumin.

Also, check out Voices of Country, Danièle’s excellent recommendations for reading, listening and viewing to increase understanding and knowledge of Aboriginal cultures.


Formal CPD is available for each session. We will provide a set of questions for each session, which will ask you to reflect on what you have learned, and what it means in the context of your professional practice.

The response can be submitted via an online form. You will receive an email with your responses as evidence of attendance and completion for the session. Please keep the response email for your records. If you don’t get the email please check your spam folder
