Dr Nannup is a well-respected Noongar Elder. He is a known story-teller and cultural guide, instructor and mentor. As Heritage Consultant with Indigenous Tours WA, Noel established the Swan River Tour in 2009, Rottnest Island Tour in 2008 and Kings Park Tour in 2004. All of which are still currently being offered.
Local artist Matt Aitken and respected Noongar elder Noel Nannup’s collaborative work arises from a collection of audio and video recordings captured during meetings between the pair held at sites around the Perth city significant for their relationship to Indigenous history. Their work Dandjoo Dabakarn frames a series of meandering conversations that celebrate storytelling, learning and local indigenous culture.
