“Yirra Yaakin creates, presents and celebrates First Nations’ theatre, performance and stories.
Local stories inspiring the globe.”

Yirra Yaakin brings you Yirra Yaarnz: two days of play readings from emerging West Australian First Nations playwrights. Held during the 2022 NAIDOC Week celebrations, its focus is on storytelling, new works, new writers and new voices.

Come along to hear readings of selected works by the Yirra Yaakin Writers’ Group, an intensive playwriting program that guides emerging First Nations writers to turn ideas into scripts. Mentored by award-winning playwrights Polly Low and Hellie Turner, this presentation showcases the importance of storytelling as it relates to Aboriginal culture.

Yirra Yaarnz is proudly supported by Lavan, WA Museum Boola Bardip and Woodside Energy.
