Galup presented by Ian Wilkes & Poppy van Oorde-Grainger

Thursday 8th September 2022

Lake Monger is an ancient wetland in the heart of suburban Perth. Its Noongar name is Galup (Kaarlup) - a place of fires, and for tens of thousands of years, it was a traditional camping and meeting place. In 1830, it was the site of a colonial massacre of Noongar people. 

In 2019 a multi-artform project called Galup began, which explores untold stories of the lake through performance, VR and online educational resources. In this presentation, Ian Wilkes and Poppy van Oorde-Grainger will discuss the project and introduce the innovative ‘Galup Virtual Reality Experience’. 

The Galup project is guided by a team of supportive Noongar Elders and produced by not-for-profit production company Same Drum. The performance and virtual reality productions were created by Noongar theatre-maker Ian Wilkes and artist/filmmaker Poppy van Oorde-Grainger with an oral history from Noongar Elder Doolann-Leisha Eatts.
