Join Parlour and the Deadly Djurumin for the first Deadly Aunties Yarn – Danièle Hromek yarns with Aunty Jacinta Tobin, a Buruberongal, Warmuli Elder of the Dharug nation about their project to countermap Dharug Country.

Our Aunties are phenomenal, we want you to meet them! Deadly Djurumin are excited to introduce a new series within our yarn program: Deadly Aunties. Our Elders guide us and share their knowledge and wisdom at appropriate times. Working with Elders in built projects grounds us in our relationships, and drives the purpose and intent of our work. Our work together with our Elders ensures genuine built outcomes for Country, culture and community. This series brings our female Elders, our Aunties, to discuss our relationships with each other, how we work, and our built environment projects.

The first Deadly Aunties Yarn is with Aunty Jacinta Tobin, a Buruberongal, Warmuli Elder of the Dharug nation. Danièle and Aunty Jacinta have worked together over some years on a project to countermap Dharug Country. Countermapping refers to the use of cartographic tools and maps to correct imbalances or denounce injustice. It is a remapping to allow those voices that have often been silenced by dominant power structures to be elevated in a way that makes sense to those voices. Countermapping is cartography that lets the powerless speak, provides the opportunity to tell the unheard stories of place. We use countermapping of Dharug Country as part of our work to masterplan with Dharug lands and waters to support Aunty Jacinta and her family and broader community’s aspirations for their Country.
