Yirra Yaakin [Yir-raarh Yaarh-kin] which means “Stand Tall” in Noongar language, is one of Australia’s leading Aboriginal performing arts organisations producing award-winning, world-class theatre that is exciting, entertaining, educational, authentic and culturally appropriate.
Each year Yirra Yaakin presents a vital and strong education program suitable for young people. We create youth-focused productions, undertake residencies and conduct workshops across the state. We tour locally and regionally, providing unique cultural experiences to some of the most remote communities in the world.
We rely on you, our community, for our future creative and cultural programs. Your donations, encouragement and friendship provide vital support for the ongoing development of our artists and our work. Help us share Aboriginal stories by becoming a donor today!
