A quick note to say that if you are in Sydney, we're super proud to have carried out the documentary video and drone work for the State Library of NSW's landmark Exploring Dyarubbin project.
Dyraubbin is the Indigenous Darug word for the Hawkesbury River west of Sydney, and the State Library team have been working for months on a groundbreaking exhibition which – as well using Wedge-Tail's video production! – tells the stories of a group of Darug women from across the region. Stories of survival and cultural heritage and cultural renewal, stories of creation, stories to fill your Easter holidays with if you're visiting central Sydney.
The exhibition also features the work of academic Grace Karskens who has been working with Darug people documenting and uncovering the (until now) partially-lost names of the region. Such a pleasure to work on and to have a fairly free-flowing creative video brief to work with.
The exhibition has been beautifully produced/curated by the talented Marika Duczysnki and Arielle Whitnall. As well as the beautiful photography of Joi Lai, there's plenty of video and drone shots of big country to keep the kids occupied. Get down there!
