Gulaga - a spiritual journey


This wonderful short film was screened at the Wallaga Lake Community Concert of Friday night, Grow the Music was invited up Gulaga Mountain by Yuin man and traditional keeper of the Mountain Warren Foster. This is one of the many stories the Mountain holds. Produced by Grow the Music's Dean Brosche Deans says of the film website "We were lucky enough to be taken up the Mother Mountain, Gulaga during our time in Wallaga Lake. Warren Foster took us up and shared some traditional stories of the Mountain. Have a watch!" Grow the Music is a creative Music and Arts program that deliver extensive and ongoing workshops in regional and remote communities across Australia. We believe in empowerment and helping young people and their communities, to realize their potential. We are committed to creating long lasting connections with our communities, to support the development of music and arts, and to nurture the dreams of young people and their families. We provide workshops for groups in a way that engages the individual, building self-esteem while providing a safe place to discover new talents and abilities. We strive to be a support system to emerging musicians to become leaders and mentors, in an effort to create pathways for young people to be supported in Music and Arts based education and training. Our goal in remote regions is to assist in the development of a self-sustaining Music and Arts scene, that is overseen by the community. We focus on whole communities and families, and work to develop stronger relationships with Knowledge Keepers, Youth Agencies and Health Professionals, to provide better outcomes for young people and families.
