Bring the family along and celebrate Mandurah's cultural diversity!

Intercultural Lullabies brings together family members from different cultural backgrounds within Mandurah, to celebrate diversity through language and song. Community groups have come together over a three month process to learn Noongar lullabies and translate them into a variety of languages that reflect Mandurah's unique cultures.

These lullabies have been collected into a songbook prepared especially for the Mandurah community, and will be presented to the wider community at the Intercultural Lullabies Celebration!

Starting from 2pm, take part in a variety of free, family-friendly multicultural workshops and activities. From 3.30pm, grab a songbook and watch as the lullaby performance begins! Sing-a-long with the choir, as they perform lullabies in multiple languages, including Noongar, Tagalog, Igbo, Esan, Sudanese Arabic and Indonesian.
