Djinanginy Ngany (Seeing Me) by Moorditj Koolangka
The Perth Centre for Photography is pleased to present Djinanginy Ngany (Seeing Me) by Moorditj Koolangka, opening 6 pm, Friday 13 November 2020. Please email info@pcp.org.au to RSVP to the opening. This program, facilitated by local artists Esther McDowell (Yabini Kickett) and Duncan Wright, features photography and drawings by the Moorditj Koolangka youth group from the Edmund Rice Centre, WA. Djinanginy Ngany (Seeing Me) explores the self expression and identification of the Moorditj Koolangka program participants through portrait photography and pattern. The exhibition will be accompanied by a poem by Noongar author Cassie Lynch, which has been written in response to the children and the project progression. The Moorditj Koolangka program is an after school group of Aboriginal youth from Mirrabooka and the surrounding areas. The children in the program participate in an array of activities spanning visual art, sport, culture and music. Moorditj Koolangka aims to provide a fun and encouraging environment for all participants as well as the opportunity to try new things without fear.
