380 Crew - 'River To The Sea'

Our Music

Added by Desert Pea Media

Description Desert Pea Media is very proud to announce our new collaboration with the Yaegl community in Maclean and Yamba in Northern NSW. This production brought together Elders, community members and young people to create a conversation about culture, country and community.

This project was funded by the Yulgilbar Foundation, and project managed by the good people at Maclean High School. This project is the second production in an ongoing partnership between Yulgilbar and DPM, to create awareness and conversation around cultural engagement, mental health and wellbeing for young Original Nations people in the Clarence Valley.

‘River To The Sea' was created in December 2018, the result of a five-day Desert Pea Media storytelling workshop. Co-written by, and starring, an incredibly talented group of young people, community members and local Elders from Maclean and Yamba NSW - with support from the DPM team and Maclean High School Staff.

Desert Pea Media projects involve a dialogue-based storytelling process that encourages participants to analyse 'the real', 'the ideal' and 'the bridge'. In simple terms this means critically thinking about how to create positive change for yourself, for each other and for our communities.

The DPM team feels deeply honoured to learn, share, create and build friendships and connection with the Yaegl community in Maclean & Yamba. These projects not only uplift and inspire audiences and community members, but everybody involved. These are friendships and experiences that all of us really treasure.

This project featured the musical direction and production of DPM producer Josh Nicholas (aka Hazy). We thank you brother for you artistic vision and hard work.

Special thanks to Project Manager, Liza Hamilton from Maclean High School, Madeleine Noble from The Yulgilbar Foundation, and all of the Yaegl Elders and local community members for making us feel so welcome, and sharing such a powerful creative journey.
