Young Way

Added by Desert Pea Media

Description Created over 5 days in August 2012, in partnership with Outback Arts and Walgett Shire Council. Walgett is a small town in northwest NSW, on the junction of the Namoi and Barwon rivers.

this song, written with young people from Walgett High School advocates awareness around local culture and social issues, acknowledging the bleak social history in Australian Indigenous communities, whilst challenging young people and local community members to create change for the future.

A special thanks to Roslyn McGregor for her ongoing support, her unwavering strength and her commitment to her people and their cultural identity.




Thanks to James Pike, Anne Dennis, Tanya Coelho, Rob Holden, Walgett Local Aboriginal Lands Council, Susan Lawrence, Outback Arts, Walgett Shire Council and the Walgett community.

We pay our respects to the Gamilaraay / Yuwaalaraay people - traditional owners of the country upon which this story was told.
