380 Crew 'Calling Into The Deep'

Young Way

Added by Desert Pea Media

Description Desert Pea Media is very proud to announce a new collaboration with the Yaegl community in Yamba & Maclean, in the Lower Clarence Valley on the North Coast of NSW.

This production, along with a short film were created over 14 days in December 2019 - an outcome of a unique, collaborative creative process with Desert Pea Media artists, local Original Nations young people, community members, Elders, High School staff and local services.

This project is part of an ongoing connection between Desert Pea Media, Maclean High School and the Yaegl Community, spanning three years.

The overall purpose of this particular project was to facilitate an important, inter-generational conversation about social and emotional well-being for Original Nations young people in 8 communities around the North Coast. The project is called 'Break It Down - Community Conversations Around Well-being' - funded by North Coast Primary Health Network.

Desert Pea Media projects involve a dialogue-based storytelling process that encourages participants to analyze '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 connections created during this project with the community and local young people are friendships that the DPM team highly value and respect. We as a team feel deeply honored to learn, share and create with the Maclean/Yamba community. These projects not only uplift and inspire audiences and community members, but everybody involved.

'Calling Into The Deep' was produced by DPM's in-house Music Producer Josh Nicholas aka 'Hazy'. We thank you brother for your artistic vision and awesome work.

Special thanks to Liza Hamilton and staff at Maclean High School for all of your incredible support, Uncle Ron Heron, Glenda Macphail, Aunty Lenore and all of the Yaegl Elders and community for having us on country.

We are deeply honored to be invited to learn, share and create with you and your family. We honor the ancestors and the stories that reside in this country, and we do our best to tread lightly, to be respectful and to contribute wherever possible.
