Bio

KDA Crew evolved from an intensive collaborative storytelling project, facilitated by a charitable organisation called Desert Pea Media .

Desert Pea Media projects involve a dialogue-based storytelling process that encourages participants to analyse '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.

This production, along with two short films were created over 14 days in June 2019 - an outcome of of a unique, collaborative creative process with Desert Pea Media artists, local Indigenous young people, community members, Elders, local health services, school staff and other community members.

Part of a broader DPM initiative called 'Break It Down - Community Conversations Around Wellbeing' - funded by North Queensland Primary Health Network and delivered in 5 North Queensland communities including Kuranda, Palm Island, Thursday Island, Lockhart River and Bowen. The overall purpose of the project was to facilitate an important, inter-generational conversation about social and emotional wellbeing for Indigenous young people.

'Djabuganydji Bama' was produced Desert Pea Media's in-house Music Producer Josh Nicholas (aka Hazy).
