The "Deep Listening Project" is one I've been involved with for several years now, working with indigenous and other artists to create a unique series of recordings and performances, with a focus on this traditional Australian indigenous practise of communication. In 2011 the "Deadly in Gippsland Conference" was an integral aspect to the ongoing activities to promote reconciliation and has been awarded a National Award for Local Government. Congrats to all the elders, artists, teachers and others involved. Needless to say this focus is to continue in order to address the cultural and social divide created in our country by white settlement. I am very proud of this work.
