The song was created in May 2017 in a 5 day Desert Pea Media (DPM) storytelling workshop. It stars the 'Githabul Next Generation' from Muli Muli community and Woodenbong Central School, in partnership with North East Waste and the NSW Environment Protection Authority.
DPM was invited to Githabul Country to facilitate a conversation about important environmental ideas facing the community and create content that could engage, inspire and educate audiences.
The project came about through an innovative recycling and rubbish program, developed with elders in the local community of Muli Muli. Working with Tash Morton from North East Waste, they are developing a program to ‘clean up’ the community rubbish dump and implement a new recycling campaign to reduce waste, educate the local mob and protect cultural sites and country from pollution.
