Event Session - Little Lunch #27

Welcome! We’d love your feedback!!

The Arts Front Platform is in live beta testing in 2020. The development team are working on it right now. The full Arts Front system will be launched in November. Please take a look around and feel free to try things out. Features will continue to change and develop but any content you create (profiles, events, groups, actions, reports) can stay in the system.

Your content always belongs to you in Arts Front. You can delete your profile and content at any time.

If you have a question or you see something that’s broken or you have ideas for new features or improvements we would love to hear from you.

Join CAN as they share their experiences of supporting Noongar communities to preserve and promote Noongar language through the creation of lullabies. Phil Bartlett - Noongar singer, songwriter and co-facilitator of CAN's Lullabies program will be there - and you might just learn some Noongar along the way!

Like many of our peers, CAN are looking for ways to stay connected with the communities who they have worked alongside for many years, and who, in these times, may feel further isolation and economic pressure. Lullabies are a simple and beautiful way to shine a light in the darkness.

Lullabies is a five-year integrated arts and language program specifically designed for Noongar families, providing the basis for learning Noongar and transferring the language into creative outcomes, including song writing, storytelling and doll making.

Now in its 4th year, CAN is bringing together everything that has been learnt so far to bring Lullabies into the online space and we are excited to share this journey with you today.

Video of "Djinda Djinda" (Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star) in the traditional language of South Western Australia.

Djinda Djinda Kanangoor is a Noongar version of one of the much loved children's lullaby - Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star.  The song was written and recorded by Gina Williams and Guy Ghouse as part of CAN's Lullabies - a music art and language program designed specifically for Aboriginal families to encourage language revival.
