Andalap Djedi

Andalap Djedi
By Community Arts Network

CAN engaged a local language consultant to work alongside Busselton Primary School students and 22 community members to co-create Andalap Djedi (Busselton Jetty), a colourful language poster featuring a collage of painted sea creatures and their Noongar names.

Noongar language lessons were integrated into art sessions where participants painted patterns to cut and collage an array of sea creatures – as well as the inevitable flip-flop (djena-bwoka) – found at Busselton Jetty.

The vibrant poster has proven to be a highly popular educational resource used to promote Noongar culture, heritage and creativity and being distributed far and wide by the CAN team.
