Our Story. Our Song.

 

Desert Pea Media is a shining example of citizen activism in the service of authentic reconciliation and community-building through dynamic forms of arts-based dialogue that empower people to speak directly to their fellow citizens. Through the work of Desert Pea Media we all come to better appreciate what it means to be human in contemporary Australia.

Desert Pea turned it around, gave us kids a reason to come to school and work together with each other instead if arguing and fighting one another.

The Desert Pea Media/Smugglers of Light SONG NATION experience has allowed this generation of young people from the Torres Strait Islands to state their belief that their pride in their culture is in their hands and they will do whatever it takes to keep it alive & strong for the future.
