The ‘World Mix’ production company concept started as an extension of musical work inspired by cross-cultural collaborations for the ‘Harmony Soiree’ 2017, 2018. The original concept was to produce recording projects that reflect and highlight the diverse musical content in Darwin and to develop a Darwin ‘blend’ that encourages cultural mixture and collaboration.
This Bagot Community partnership has an added focus on Aboriginal cultural content which is incredibly diverse in its own right. Current projects at the newly functioning studio space include a program with ‘Aboriginal Resource and Development Services-Public Health Network’ called’Harmony For Health’, which targets Darwin Aboriginal adults and youth considered at risk and in need of local support networks related to homelessness, also issues with alcohol and other drugs.
Darwin Community Arts are renovating the original Community Store and Multi-Purpose building after consultations with Bagot Advisory Group and are developing youth and adult programs for the community. We are currently recording traditional songs and languages from across east and west Arnhemland.
