The Shire of Nannup is thrilled to have supported the ‘Spirit of the Heart-Djanga Koornt,’ Wardandi Song Project. 

The project was launched at the Nannup Go for 2 & 5 Family Fun Day before being developed further at a workshop at the iconic Nannup Music Festival. After filming and recording took place with Nannup youth, the project completed in June 2023. It was funded through the National Australia Day Council. 

Proud local Wardandi traditional custodian Mitchella Hutchins with cultural leader for the Yamitji Region, Richard Nelson and proud spokesperson for the Indigenous groups, singer /songwriter Dianna Gee developed the project through each of its stages.

This is an incredible project for the Nannup Youth to have been part of, with the project connecting Indigenous and Non-Indigenous communities together through song writing, detailing a brighter future as we walk together.
