Ngala Bidi Wongi Boodjar Exhibition Catalogue


The exhibition Ngala Bidi Wongi Boodjar – Our Paths Talking Country was launched on the 29th of October 2022 and is the culmination of the first phase of Place Names Melville.

Place Names Melville has been a journey of reconciliation and Noongar language revival produced by Community Arts Network (CAN) in partnership with Moodjar Consultancy, the Noongar community and the City of Melville.

Three areas within the City of Melville - Goolugatup, Willagee and Jenalup (Blackwall Reach) - were explored through a cultural mapping process and an interplay of mark making and collage artworks inspired by walks on country.

This catalogue captures the creative exploration of place by our Place Names Melville community participants.
