‘State of the Heart' was created in July 2018, the result of a five-day Desert Pea Media storytelling workshop. Co-written by, and starring, an incredibly talented group of Indigenous young people enrolled at Deniliquin High School, community members and local Elders - with support from DPM staff and local services.
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.
We are really proud of the young people involved in this production. The complex issues raised in this song around race and cultural identity are often difficult to talk about. The co-writers and performers showed great bravery and intelligence, and it was a very special thing to be a part of.
