Learn to sing in Noongar!

If you’ve ever wanted to learn how to sing a song in Noongar, or even write your own original lullaby – here’s your chance!

CAN, in partnership with South West Aboriginal Medical Service and the Noongar Boodjar Language Centre is holding a Lullabies workshop at Roelands Village on Saturday July 7.

Specifically designed for Noongar parents, grandparents and children, Lullabies teaches Noongar language and helps participants create songs and stories in traditional language that can be shared for generations to come.

Language teacher and musician Charmaine Councillor will assist with song writing and textile artist Marcelle Riley will teach eco-dying techniques to make a bush doll.

A performance during NAIDOC week on Thursday July 12th in Bunbury will showcase the songs created over this period.

It’s not too late to get involved! For more information contact program manager Brooke Small on 0438 694 644, brooke@canwa.com.au.

Workshops run on Saturday July 7 from 10am to 5pm, 575 Seven Hills Rd, Roelands.
