Ballarat Pride Month – Yarnbombing Project

You are invited to take part in the Ballarat Pride Yarn Bombing Project!

Select trees all throughout Ballarat will be decorated with yarn during Pride Month in June to celebrate and share the beauty of our local LGBTQIA+ community.

What you can do: you, your friends and/or your community group is invited knit or crochet squares and rectangles. They can be 20cm x 20cm, 20cm x 40cm, or 40cm x 40cm. The squares will be collected in early May and sewn together to be displayed in trees around Ballarat for the month of June.

So that this project can continue to benefit Ballarat even after June, once the knitted and crochet pieces have been removed from the trees, they will be washed and repurposed into blankets for the Ballarat Animal shelter.

The Ballarat Pride Yarnbombing Project is a public art initiative supported by Ballarat City Council.

Across Victoria’s Midwest, we acknowledge that we travel across the ancient landscapes of many First Peoples communities.

These lands have been nurtured and cared for over tens of thousands of years and we respect the work of Traditional Custodians for their ongoing care and protection.

We recognise the past injustices against Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples in this country. As our knowledge grows, we hope that we can learn from their resilience and creativity that has guided them for over 60,000 years.

As we invite people to visit and explore Victoria’s Midwest, we ask that alongside us, you also grow to respect the stories, living culture and connection to Country of the Ancestors and Elders of our First Peoples.
