Noongar Storytellers in Residence

In 2020 Perth Festival will work with members of the Noongar community to offer an enriching cultural program to Primary Schools which combines storytelling as well as an interactive and playful introductory Noongar language lesson.

Working alongside Artistic Associate Kylie Bracknell, Perth Festival will match participating schools with storytellers and workshop facilitators who will deliver a program with a strong connection to language, Country and culture. Each program will be bespoke to the schools and classes chosen.

Noongar Storytellers in Residence will be offered across Term 1 & 2 2020, and is open to Primary Schools located on Noongar boodjar.

Teachers can register to participate by completing the form below.
