Rekindling Stories on Country

Rekindling Stories on Country shared powerful voices and stories from Noongar country through contemporary art. Developed in consultation with Elders and community members, the program brought together people from different generations so that important community and personal narratives of history, culture and place could emerge.

A diverse range of professional artists and facilitators mentored participants through creative processes that delivered an incredible array of artistic outcomes – including poetry, clay sculpture, printed textiles and yarn weavings. The creative processes also encouraged intergenerational knowledge-sharing and strengthened community leadership. In many cases, it created new creative and professional pathways for participants, too.

By engaging with local, national and international audiences, Rekindling Stories on Country facilitated the sharing of Noongar language and culture with the broader community.
