Four Yarns furthers its mission to instil the importance of sharing culture through oral history recordings. 

Featured within the exhibition are stories from Maureen Eggmolesse (Byellee), Ben Ghee (Torres Strait Islander), Richard Johnson (Gooreng Gooreng) and Immanuel Beezley (Kabi Kabi), in conversation with young people. The exhibition includes photographic portraits and video footage of the yarns
