Desert Pea Media shines a spotlight on Cunnamulla with 'Southwest Murries'
Early in 2019, the creative team from Desert Pea Media (DPM) worked with a group of incredible young First Nations artists from Cunamulla to write a song for the community and participate in a music video.
Through a dialogue-based storytelling process, encouraging participants to analyse ‘the real’, ‘the ideal’ and ‘the bridge’; stories shared by the students, formed the basis of the song entitled “Ripple Effect”.
Premiering on May 23, 2019, “Ripple Effect” provided an opportunity for students to think about creating positive changes for themselves, for each other and for the community, whilst embracing their culture and heritage.
Established in 2002, DPM – a registered charitable organisation, works with young Indigenous people in regional and remote areas of Australia using contemporary storytelling techniques and audio-visual media to foster important social and cultural dialogue.
With oral traditions substantiating Aboriginal perspective about the past, present and the future, stories expressed through visual and performing arts, songs and multimedia provide further opportunity for concepts, beliefs and culture to be celebrated, shared and passed on from generation to generation.
With over 4000 views on YouTube, the music clip produced by DPM entitled “Ripple Effect” is a credit to all those involved.
Congratulations to you all.
