IN SEPTEMBER 2017 OVER 30 ARTISTS IN THE FIELD OF MUSIC AND VISUAL ART CONVERGED IN THE HEART OF WEST PILBARA FOR A WEEK OF CREATION, RECORDING AND COLLABORATION IN THE HISTORIC TOWN OF COSSACK (BAJINHURRBA) -
ARTISTS WILL EXPERIENCE SOME OF THE TREASURES OF THE PILBARA, ITS HISTORY, LANDSCAPES, CULTURE AND PEOPLE, THEN SEEK TO REFLECT THE EXPERIENCE THROUGH THE CREATION OF AN ALBUM, A FILM AND A VARIETY OF VISUAL ARTS, ALL WITH THE AIM OF EXPOSING AND GIVING BACK TO THIS AMAZING AND DIVERSE PART OF THE WORLD.
At Boonderu we firmly believe in the power of music and its place at the heart of any education environment.
Music is a primal form of teaching and communication. It activates areas of the brain that pertain to emotion, motivation, learning and reward. With various instruments, you can weave a story and produce a calm reserve.
Although a high percentage of our students are Aboriginal, Boonderu is a place for all children of any race, gender or background. Our program started in Roebourne in January 2015 and has now expanded to five other schools throughout the Pilbara and into Perth. We work closely with each school and their teaching staff at Roebourne DHS, Mosman Park Primary School, South Fremantle High School, Dampier Primary School, Seaforth Primary School and Southern River High School.
Aboriginal culture is a 75,000 year old culture based on song and story telling. The elders of Roebourne say,
"A good education is like a song. You sing the song over and over until the song is part of you. Sharing your song keeps your mind and body strong".
