Watch: Indigenous Hip Hop Projects and the Garma Youth Forum collaborate
Our friends at the Yothu Yindi Foundation had another amazing year with their 2015 Festival, held in Gulkala, North East Arnhem Land (NT) earlier this month.
Indigenous Hip Hop Projects, soul singer Emma Donovan, and participants in the Garma Youth Forum collaborated to make a music video entitled ‘Knowledge Is Power (Go to School),’ a rap about the importance of getting an education, knowledge being power, and setting up a good future for themselves. The video was record, produced, filmed, and edited in 48 hours by the extraordinarily talented Garma Youth.
Last year our Foundation was proud to publish Ganbulapula Story written by Djalinda Yunupingu and illustrated by students with ILF Ambassador Alison Lester at the Youth Forum.
