The Cannery Arts Centre will host Art on the Move's unique Ngala Wongga exhibition.

The photo exhibition and multimedia projection is displayed through floating layers of tulle fabric and will feature rare audio of Aboriginal elders sharing stories and songs.

The Cannery will hold the opening night on Friday, October 11 from 6.30pm.

The exhibition is set to immerse those who experience it in a dazzling sight and sound installation.

The art draws attention to the need to preserve at-risk Indigenous languages in the Goldfields by documenting some of the last remaining speakers and their physical and cultural connection to their lands.

The exhibition is a collaboration between project producer and photographer Martine Perret and digital production technician, video and sound designer Jonathan Mustard.

The project was supported by the WA Department of Culture and the Arts.

Following the opening night, the exhibition will be open from October 12 to November 17, from 10am to 4pm, Tuesday to Friday and from noon to 4pm on Saturdays, Sundays and public holidays.
