The Mowanjum Art and Cultural Centre received $8,100 towards their Song Weavers Water Project during round four of funding.

In 2019, members of the Mowanjum Aboriginal community came together to share stories, songs, and creations about water and its value.

Water plays a big part in the lives of the Mowanjum People, and so they used their funding to develop a song about the importance of water to be sung in language and English.

The project encompassed varied art-forms and community engagement to encourage connection, participation, and engagement. Workshops were held to create the song and art forms with a performance delivered at the Water Weavers Festival.

The Centre is a creative hub for the Worrorra, Ngarinyin and Wunumbal tribes, who make up the Mowanjum community outside Derby, Western Australia.

Round 5 of the Kimberley Community Grants is now open. Visit to apply and for further information! Grants close 4pm WST, 8 May 2020.
