Community Yarn Ups – oral/video and photo history recording sessions held at locations around the country – were a vital part of the Serving Our Country Project.
Through the Yarn Ups and other interviews undertaken we have gathered important stories of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Service in defence of country. The Yarn Ups were structured to allow individuals to tell their story, their way, and these histories are helping us to present a richer, deeper history of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders service and memories of their involvement, that relying on archives alone could not achieve.
