Moorditj Day Out

The Moorditj Day Out was a festival in the Wheatbelt town of Tammin celebrating two of CAN’s Wheatbelt projects that were part of the long term Voices of the Wheatbelt program.

The festival showcased the local Wheatbelt talent and included a performance by the Healing Songs singers from Kellerberrin and Quairading, Hip Hop dance performances by local stars Static Crew and Lil Sparks with the Beatwalkers from Midvale and Craig “Chook” Pickett serenaded the audience with his gentle blend of country rock.

The celebration honoured the success of the 8 year long Voices of the Wheatbelt project and the series of hip hop music and dance workshops through Rural Rhythms.

Voices of the Wheatbelt ran between 2007 and 2015 and delivered oral histories, film making, photography and music healing workshops to rural communities in the Wheatbelt. Read more about Voices of the Wheatbelt here.

Rural Rhythms was a series of youth hip hop music and dance workshops run in eastern Wheatbelt schools, and the project lives on with the Static Crew and Lil Sparks hip hop dance groups.

Despite these projects drawing to a close, CAN continues to deliver projects alongside the Noongar community in the Wheatbelt, using the power of the arts to preserve, celebrate and honour Noongar culture.

The Moorditj Day Out was presented by CAN in partnership with the Town of Tammin and with funding support from the CBH Group, Department of Social Services, Ministry for the Arts and the Australia Council.
