Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander young people in remote communities worked with headspace, Indigenous Hip Hop Projects (IHHP) and Indigenous creative agency Gilimbaa to create the ‘Got a lot going on’ music video. The hip hop video was written and performed by the young people themselves and captures the broad range of issues they are facing, including racism, stress, drugs and isolation, but stresses there is ‘no shame in talking it out’.
