Launch: Culture Connect celebrate black as their identity

Culture Connect is a group of young Original Nations artists from the the Wiradjuri community of Forbes in Central West NSW.

The Real World is an uplifting, hip hop/trap anthem for the Central West. This track is a brave conversation about a range of hard-hitting social issues. Including The Stolen Generation, institutionalised racism, domestic violence, grief & trauma – The Real World is an attempt to change the paradigm, start the conversation and celebrate the resilience and strength of the Wiradjuri People.

The group has evolved from a storytelling project coordinated with local Elders and young people enrolled at Forbes High School, funded by Western NSW Primary Health Network (WNSW PHN), hosted by Yoorana Gunya and facilitated/directed by DPM.
