Noongar Boodja

Noongar Boodja

Presented by UWA Cultural Precinct

Noongar Boodja is a 35-minute documentary film made by young Aboriginal people from Albany. This stunning cinematic story explores with Menang Elders significant cultural places and the meaning behind their Noongar names. Its first public screening received a standing ovation from the 700-strong Albany audience and since the screening, there has been a wave of support for dual place naming, which was argued strongly by Elders in the film. Noongar Boodja was developed as part of CAN's Place Names project that draws on Professor Len Collard's long-term research.

The NAIDOC week screening of Noongar Boodja will be followed by a Q&A with the people behind the film and project. Come and share in this powerful story and discuss the value of dual naming on Noongar country.

WINTERreise

Winterreise - The Phenomenon

Presented by UWA Conservatorium of Music

Kew's Forgotten Queen

Presented by UWA Cultural Precinct

Join us for a screening of Kew’s Forgotten Queen, a documentary celebrating the work of one of the most prolific botanical artists of the Victorian age – Marianne North. At a time when women barely left their parlour rooms, North defied convention as she travelled alone navigating the world twice, from Borneo to Brazil to Japan, in her pursuit of documenting every living plant on her canvas. Marianne North (24 October 1830 – 30 August 1890) was prolific biologist and botanical artist, widely renowned for her plant and landscape paintings, plant discoveries, writings, and the creation of her gallery at the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew. Presenting Partner: BBC Four
