CAN engaged Aboriginal artists to create an animated video for one of the first songs recorded in the Lullabies series, the Noongar version of “Twinkle Twinkle Little Star”.

The animated video was produced by VAM Media and features the talents of many First Nations creators, including musicians Gina Williams and Guy Ghouse, multimedia artist Yabini Kickett and director Danni Booth. The animation also stars young actors Lara and Finlay.

The animation was launched by the Federal Minister for Indigenous Australians, The Hon. Ken Wyatt AM MP in October 2019.

Following the launch it reached wider audiences with consistent screenings at Yagan Square’s digital tower and the Perth Cultural Centre screen. It is a much-shared resource from CAN’s website and social media platforms.
