The Kambarang Festival was held on the banks of Gnarojin Creek in 2013, and brought together over 500 people for a showcase of art, craft, music and dance from the Wheatbelt.
Named after one of the six Noongar seasons, the festival promoted cultural pride and featured a performance by the Healing Songs singers from Kellerberrin and Quairading and headline performances by Damien Thornber and the Orphans.
Hip hop outfit Cortex, and Noongar songstress Gina Williams with Guy Ghouse performed, and the crowd was treated to a performance by the Noongar Pop Culture students from Narrogin.
Kellerberrin’s dynamic young hip hop dance groups Static Crew and Lil Sparks also strutted their stuff in front of the appreciative crowd.
CAN also ran a variety of interactive, free workshops at the festival including photography, basket weaving, eco-bundle-dyeing and crafts workshops with contemporary and cultural materials.
In the lead up to the festival the Desert Feet Tour crew delivered music and song writing workshops in the region and the budding young artists who had attended the workshops performed on stage at the Kambarang Festival in an open mic session.
