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. All sessions include CPD questions. See you there!

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


Formal CPD is available for each session. We 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 is 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

Learning objectives

The learning objectives of the series as a whole relate to the Practice Management and Design units of Competency in the 2015 NSCA.

The Yarns include content relevant to the 2021 NSCA across all three Professional Capabilities – Professionalism, Communication and Environmental Practice – and all four Units of Competency – practice management and professional conduct, project initiation and conceptual design, detailed design and construction documentation, design delivery and construction phase services.

The learning objectives are as follows:

  • To increase knowledge of Country and Cultural Authority among built environment practitioners
  • To improve understanding of the roles and experiences of of Indigenous practitioners
  • To increase understanding of authorship in relation to cultural knowledge and the implications of this in design contexts
  • To develop understanding of working respectfully and effectively with Traditional Custodians and Knowledge Holders
  • To increase understanding of the impact of design projects on Country
  • To support respectful and meaningful communication

The first Deadly Djurumin Yarn was held at the start of September.
