Noongar Voices

Project Overview

Noongar Voices Project Overview Mobile

OVERVIEW

Noongar Voices was a three-part radio documentary series that aired on ABC Radio National and shared the life stories of a group of people from the Central Eastern Wheatbelt. The project expanded on the Voices of the Wheatbelt project, moving beyond photography into audio-documentary making.

The series was focused on extracts from oral history interviews conducted by Mary Anne Jebb and Bill Bunbury. As well as assisting Noongar people from the Wheatbelt to record their life stories, the project provided opportunities for the broader community to gain an insight into Noongar life in the Wheatbelt.

"These programs present listeners with a rich tapestry of voices taken from oral history interviews. These are the real voices of people recalling their life experiences, their families and their history, they are the real sounds of the Central Eastern Wheatbelt people; an invitation to listeners to hear and share stories of sadness, everyday life and the sense of humour that got Noongars through.”

- Mary Anne Jebb
