KMC - 'The Situation'

Our Music

Added by Desert Pea Media

Description Desert Pea Media is very proud to announce a new collaboration with the community of Kempsey, on beautiful Dunghutti Country on the Mid North Coast of NSW.

This production was created in August 2020 - an outcome of a unique, collaborative creative process between Desert Pea Media, and the amazing students and staff at Kempsey Macleay Vocational College ft. local Dunghutti/Gumbaynggirr Elders, young people, local services and community members.

The overall purpose of the broader 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 ?

We as a team feel deeply honoured and grateful to learn, share and create with the KMC family. These projects not only uplift and inspire audiences and community members, but everybody involved.

'The Situation' 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 Mark Morrison and the staff at Macleay Vocational College.
