Gina Williams- Wanjoo 1120-584

Five copies to giveaway of Gina Williams’ new book Wanjoo

2 Feb

Last Friday the Sounds Australia Music Export Meetings were held, offering free advice sessions with Executive Producer Millie Millgate to WAM Members – more info here. One of the artists taking advantage of these sessions was Indigenous WAMAwards-winning singer-songwriter Gina Williams, who writes and performs songs in the Noongar language.

As pictured, she brought along her recently released first book, Wanjoo, offering a chance to look at this song and language in a new way and featuring illustrations from the brilliant students at Ashfield Primary School in Perth. Available for $30, the sales of the book will help enable schools to access this language, engaging with children to deliver a message of inclusiveness and reconciliation. This campaign will also kickstart a “pay it forward” system, where proceeds from book sales will enable access by schools which have smaller numbers (and don’t necessarily have the budget to host a workshop).

Here at the WAM office we were lucky enough to receive FIVE COPIES TO GIVEAWAY. Head to our Facebook to win!
