The project Looking, listening, yarning brings together Stolen Generation survivors, Elders and the general Cherbourg community to engage and interact with filmed, photographic and audio testimonies of former Cherbourg Dormitory and other Stolen Generation children (e.g. interviews made for the Domo Boys and Domo Girls films). Cherbourg Historical Precinct hosts weekly gatherings in the Elders’ Room located in the Boys’ Dormitory Building. Ration Shed Museum facilitators use the visual and audio stories for discussions, reflection and healing.
