In Kellerberrin, the Bush Babies project started in 2012 and involved more than 80 community members in a series of photographic workshops, photo documentation, digital recordings, research trips and community storytelling events.
The project involved the State Library, photographers Jarred Seng, Tash Nannup and Richard Watson with scrapbooking expert Raelee Cook, culminating in a photographic exhibition that celebrated the strength and resilience of Noongar families in the Eastern Wheatbelt. The exhibition documented current cultural and family knowledge and also included archival photographs that shared stories from the community’s past. CAN also produced a community calendar that showcased the photos.
“All the stories, the greatest stories have been narrated by our forefathers, our grandfathers, our dads. It’s amazing the stories you hear from them.”
