Intercultural Lullabies

Intercultural Lullabies brings together family members from different cultural backgrounds within Mandurah, to celebrate diversity through language and song. Community groups have come together over a three month process to learn Noongar lullabies and translate them into a variety of languages that reflect Mandurah’s unique cultures.

These lullabies have been collected into a songbook prepared especially for the Mandurah community, and will be presented to the wider community at the Intercultural Lullabies Celebration! The songbook cover artwork was created by talented local Mandurah artist and illustrator Golia Paymani. You can check out Golia's beautiful illustrations and prints from her website MandArt.

The project culminated in a public celebration and performance at Mandurah Performing Arts Centre.

Project Testimonials

“I encourage everyone to learn about someone else’s culture and if we do that, we’ll create better respect and understanding of each other. We all have music, we all have traditional songs from our cultures and this is a great way of celebrating how we can come together as a united group with those differences.”
