Noongar Boddington Poles

In 2013, CAN worked with Newmont Boddington Gold and Sodexo to deliver a community and public art project that would represent the local Noongar culture, create cultural dialogue and enhance the Newmont Boddington Gold site.

Noongar artists Lance Chadd and Donna Beach worked with community members and mine workers to prepare, design, paint and carve six wooden poles. Installed throughout the landscape at the mine site, the Noongar Boddington Poles formed a bold, bright and engaging art piece that represent the Noongar seasons, in both Noongar and English, and feature the flora and fauna of the area.

The Noongar Boddington Poles were well received and the project created strong cultural dialogue between Newmont Boddington Gold, Sodexo and the community.
