With NAIDOC week approaching we are revisiting Red Room Poetry's Unlocked poetry and music workshops at Balund-a. This time we feature recordings from the NAIDOC week workshops and community celebration in 2017. Balund-a is a diversionary program for young indigenous offenders situated on a beautiful working cattle property near Tabulam in northern NSW. Apart from regular indigenous mentors and facilitators Lionel Fogarty, Joe Geia and Lewis Walker we also hear from a member of staff at Balund-a. She outlines the purpose and philosophy behind the programs offered at Balund-a.
