I was recently requested to develop a short documentary video on the hip hop scene in Australia from the perspectives of female artists' and community workers. These women have contributed to the development of the scene since the 1980s-90s and continue to practice as artists and community development workers across Western Sydney and Sydney CBD impacting the lives of many young people and emerging artists.
Our first interview was with MC Trey's long time friend MC Thorn at Redfern Community Centre. Thorn took us back in time where I had an insight to what life looked like for a young person back then. I was fascinated by Thorn's passionate narrative and Trey was definitely feeling it too as they reminisced on the good old days.
I look forward to our next set of interviews with Trey and her friends. Our video will be part of an exhibition at the Blacktown Arts Centre at the end of June. Keep your eyes peeled for more details soon.
