Over two days, Dickens worked with Blacklock Media to make a film of Pascoe walking through Gamilaaraay Country near the town of Bingara in the north-east of NSW. Walking alongside Pascoe are a group of Aboriginal primary school

children from Bingara Central School. The children represent the next generation, who must be equipped with the right skills and knowledge to implement positive changes to continue to be successful custodians of the land.

Pascoe and the children are wearing capes, made by Dickens, with words such as listen' and culture', embroidered onto them. The words on the capes denote the things that will be of vital importance in countering the current environmental crisis. The full set of capes will also feature in the exhibition.
