Mt Druitt - St Mary's Standard (East) - - NEWS - Danielle Jarvis

STREET Uni Mt Druitt’s Made in Mt Druitt cam­paign to put a pos­i­tive twist on the sub­urb has taken off.

It orig­i­nally be­gan has a four-video se­ries to com­bat the neg­a­tive pub­lic­ity that fol­lowed the air­ing of SBS doc­u­men­tary Strug­gle Street last month.

Ac­cord­ing to one of the videos’ pro­duc­ers Zehrish Naera, a suc­cess­ful DJ from Mt Druitt, the cam­paign has snow­balled into a con­tin­u­ous se­ries.

“We’ve had a re­ally good re­sponse from the gen­eral public and lo­cal com­mu­nity,” Naera said.

So far Street Uni has re­leased four videos – the first one fea­tur­ing Naera’s own story as DJ 26th Let­ter who has worked with the likes of Katy Perry – which cel­e­brate the di­ver­sity of Mt Druitt through the eyes of its own.

Two more videos are ex­pected within the next week, and Naera said they will keep com­ing.

Any­one who wants to be fea­tured in a Made in Mt Druitt video can con­tact the pro­duc­ers via face­book.com/StreetUniver­sity and face­book.com/mt­druitt­stan­dard.
