Heaps Decent in Wilcannia

Music initiative Heaps Decent has begun its Wilcannia workshops in North West NSW as part of a two-year project funded by the Department of Human Services. Armed with professional recording equipment, Heaps Decent will make quarterly trips to Wilcannia over the next two years to lead music production workshops with the community’s disadvantaged and Indigenous young people. Heaps Decent has joined forces with Wings Drop-In Centre and West Darling Arts to facilitate the three-day workshop programs, which train participants to produce a professional standard EP. The program also focuses on creating positive and engaging opportunities for young people to express themselves, while enhancing life skills including teamwork and literacy.
