The Lake Cargelligo hip hop track is finally out!

The Lake Cargelligo hip hop track is finally out!

Arts OutWest has been working with Desert Pea Media for many years. Desert Pea Media heads into communities, makes connections, spends the time to talk to elders and gets talking to young people.

For our Spread the Word Aboriginal arts and health project, Desert Pea Media worked in Condobolin, Forbes, Orange and most recently Lake Cargelligo. For the Lake project the guys from Desert Pea were joined by Aussie hip hop legend OziBatla.

Students participating in the hip hop project were from Lake Cargelligo Central and St Francis Xavier Central schools.  Huge thanks go to the teachers at those schools for making this project possible.

An interview with Lake Cargelligo elders and artists Lola Black and Lindsay Kirby, produced by Desert Pea Media:

This project, part of Spread the Word, is a 2012-2014 project of Arts OutWest that promotes healthy lifestyle and raises awareness of chronic disease in Aboriginal communities in Central West NSW. This Local Community Campaign was developed with funding from the Australian Government through the Department of Health and Ageing.
