“Music and art have healing qualities that have been used for millennia to raise awareness, change thoughts and behaviours and improve the fabric of societies. Every single person has the right to a voice and I believe in the power of song to change the world,” Shellie Morris, multi-award-winning Wardaman/Yanyuwa woman.
