Lockhart River to celebrate launch of hip hop video

Date posted: 10 April 2014

Lockhart River in North Queensland will celebrate the launch of a hip hop video featuring young people from the community on April 16 2014.

Aounipima's Health Promotion and Tackling Smoking Healthy Lifestyles team, working in partnership with Police Citizens Youth Club (PCYC) Indigenous Development Unit, commissioned Indigenous Hip Hop Project to create music videos with the Lockhart River and Aurukun communities during 2014.

Advanced Health Worker, Tobacco and Healthy Lifestyles, Gerrald Lasserre said the Lockhart River community enjoyed every minute of the production process and was looking forward to seeing the finished product.

‘The project would not have happened without the tremendous support of Indigenous Hip Hop Projects and the Lockhart River community,’ Mr Lasserre said.

‘The video captures young people’s singing and dancing talents as well as their messages on smoking, exercise, the importance of culture and their affection for Lockhart River. Everyone is extremely excited about seeing the video on April 16.’

The Lockhart River celebrations will start on April 15 and continue for three days.
