Spin a Yarn is a project from Black Hole Theatre, funded through Council's Quick Response Grant program.
It began in 2020 during the pandemic as a collaboration between artists and members of the Monash community to develop and tell stories through puppetry.
Because gatherings were not possible, the group decided the stories should be shared through video, and the pieces were developed with that form in mind.

It has been an amazing journey, rich with challenge, learning, debate and joy on all sides.
Black Hole would like to thank all participants for their commitment, generosity, and willingness to explore something new.
As restrictions ease, Black Hole looks forward to offering this project to other communities, developing new stories and celebrating the creative potential in our diverse society!
The Quick Response Grant program was developed to support the adaptation and continuation of local community groups and individual creative efforts to help build community resilience and unity during and after the pandemic.
Quick Response Grants are designed to support local community groups and individual creative efforts to assist in strengthening community and building cohesion and whose project, program or issue may arise outside of the normal funding cycle of the Monash Community Grant Program.
