Indigenous teenagers from Australia’s most remote communities have banded together to produce a music video called – “It’s your turn”.
View the sample of the music video featuring students from the Northern Territory.
Written and performed by secondary school students from remote Indigenous communities in the Northern Territory, Western Australia, South Australia, Queensland and New South Wales, the music video has been produced to help launch a new Indigenous Training Academy.
The Indigenous Training Academy, a key project of the National Alliance for Remote Indigenous Schools, has been formed to inspire Indigenous students to think more deeply about what it means to be a teacher and how becoming a teacher could be a good thing for them and their community.
“It’s your turn” tells the story of how important it is for these kids to put their hands up to become teachers.
