Wednesday 6th May, 12:00pm - 12:30pm AEST
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.

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.
