We Are The Future - Music Video

Throughout 2018, BYDS’ Craig Taunton & Willem Booker ran weekly workshops with a group of year 5 and 6 boys at Punchbowl Public School. The workshops resulted in a song that reflected the boys new understanding of gender violence and how men can take part in ending that in Australia.

The boys performed We Are The Future at the WDVCASNSW conference in the Sydney CBD and the “Canterbury Bankstown Says No to Domestic Violence” conference in October 2018.

This original song encapsulates the anti-violence philosophy behind the RESPECT program and has led to a huge growth in awareness and performance skills in the participating boys as well as a great public outcome.
