The project also returned to Hobart in 2015 to undertake more interviews, including with former senior curator of Indigenous Culture at the Tasmanian Museum and Art Gallery Tony Brown.

Tasmanian Yarn Ups 2014

The Hobart Yarn Up held at the Risdon Pyramids was very quiet though we had some good discussions with researchers and TMAG staff in town, and we found out more about Boer War service too. Launceston was more forthcoming, with several relatives of men from Cape Barren Island who had served in the wars coming to see us at the Aboriginal Elders Council of Tasmania and Riawanna.
