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

The Mowanjum Art and Cultural Centre received $8,100 from the Kimberley Community Grants towards the creation of a performance at the Water Weavers Festival. 

Water plays a big part in the lives of the Mowanjum People, 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.
