Stories Between Time was a Riverland wellbeing project set to bring a small group of First Nations Elders with non-Aboriginal young people to meet, hear stories and perspectives.

This project was brought together by FocusOne Health, headspace Berri and Closing the Gap Riverland.

Aunty Yvonne (Yvonne Koolmatrie) often reminisced about her love for the Murray River — it is our home, it connects us in more ways than one. Her words stuck with Kirste throughout these sessions.

Symposium was a youth-led project (as part of Part of Things, jointly with Berri Barmera Council and Barmera Central, supported by District Council of Loxton Waikerie and Renmark Paringa Council). A cohort of young people developed a weekend of workshops dedicated to skills building

As one of the founders of Symposium, Kirste experienced first-hand how people are ready to help, connect, learn and celebrate. That’s what inspired this piece.
