OVERVIEW

In 2015 and 2016, CAN supported the people of Busselton to contribute to two significant community arts projects that sought to reinforce ties to Noongar culture and raise the profile of Aboriginal artists within the visual arts landscape.

As a part of Keyen Koondarm, painting, Noongar language and oral history workshops supported 40 participants to share their personal stories and reflections on life, leading to their work being shown in several exhibition spaces in Busselton and Perth.

The Andalap Djedi (Busselton Jetty) project united the young people of Busselton with other community members to create a colourful poster and unique learning resource that shares Noongar culture and language with the broader community.
