Message Stick - 4077: Stylin' Up
The south-western Brisbane suburb of Inala was originally established to provide affordable accommodation to World War 2 veterans during the post war housing shortage. By the early 60s, many Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people had also moved to the area and today, nearly eight percent of residents living in Inala are Indigenous.
But over the years, the suburb's endured negative press and unwarranted stereotypes, and the community banded together to start a unique Indigenous hip-hop and R'n'B festival called 'Stylin' Up'. Since its inception in 2001, Stylin' Up has unearthed new musical talent, expanded to two stages, now includes regional Indigenous communities in other parts of Queensland and attracts more than 10,000 spectators.
