Going Bush

As we started to travel with the quilts and collect stories from across Central Australia, we noticed that women in different places had different ways of supporting each other through unhealthy relationships. A lot of women living in small towns and communities outside Alice Springs spoke about the importance of going bush – hunting, camping and relaxing – in staying strong.

Going Bush is a narrative script created from a story from a woman who spent many years living in Ernabella (Pukatja) and the stories on a quilt made by some ladies in Warburton. It talks about why it's important to get out of the house when you are feeling down, and some of the things women enjoy doing when they go bush.
