Fig Tree Mob - 'Barrunba (Dreaming)'

Our Music

Added by Desert Pea Media

Description Desert Pea Media is very proud to announce a new collaboration with the Dunghutti community in South West Rocks, on the Mid North Coast of NSW.

This production, along with a short film were created over 14 days in August 2020 - an outcome of a unique, collaborative creative process with Desert Pea Media artists, local Dunghutti young people, community members, Elders, and local services.

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 6 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 local community and local young people are friendships that the DPM team treasure. We as a team feel deeply honoured to learn, share and create with the Fig Tree families and wider community. These projects not only uplift and inspire audiences and community members, but everybody involved.

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

Special thanks to Nancy Pattison, Lional Blair and Benelong Carroll, Aunty Cheryl Blair and Uncle Martin Ballangary and all the South West Rocks mob for having us on your beautiful country.
