Nowanup cultural program set to expand with $615,000 Lotterywest grant

The Nowanup Healing People, Healing Country Program has received more than $600,000 to ensure its ongoing viability and bring it a step closer to becoming an autonomous Noongar-run social enterprise.

Over the past 16 years, Nowanup — located south of Jerramungup — has become an innovative place for learning, healing and environmental restoration under the guidance of Noongar elders with support from conservation organisation Gondwana Link.

The 750ha property was purchased in 2004 and transferred to Greening Australia, and has since evolved to deliver a range of cultural and educational camps for communities, schools and universities.

They include youth at risk and justice intervention programs, eco-art projects, music festivals, corporate leadership teams, cultural and heritage assessments.

Nowanup has also partnered with Curtin University to establish a Bush University campus to provide a place to immerse students in Noongar culture, language and history.
