Weaving our drug and alcohol yarn was held on Tuesday 17th of October 2023 down at Cooya Beach.
Mossman Elders Justice Network and Douglas Shire Council were invited to attend with their clients. They came along and participated joining with tables, chairs, refreshments and support.
The activity and yarning structure were designed to weave together group discussions, looking at how drug and alcohol can lead to experience of disconnection and by identifying breaks in our woven stories.
We focused on five topics of discussions - Family/Friends, Community/Mob, Culture/Country, Spirit/Self.
The skill of basket weaving was shared and appreciated with many ladies wanting to continue on with the craft which in turn benefits the young people of our wonderful community.
It was a full day of yarning and weaving, with everyone sharing from a heartfelt space. ... See MoreSee Less
