Noongar Pop Culture

Music and Language Revival

Pop Photog Project Overview Mobile

OVERVIEW

The first phase of the Noongar Pop Culture project focused on language revival, aiming to teach students in Narrogin their critically endangered traditional language – Noongar. In 2013 a team of Aboriginal artists, performers and role models met with Narrogin Senior High School students for a language based community arts workshop.

With the Noongar language at the risk of being lost, this project inspired students to learn their traditional language through hip hop, media and adapting contemporary pop songs.

Project Testimonials

“This is a town where young fellas are suffering and to give them a bit of their culture back just changed their perspective of who they are as young Noongar people.”
