Name: Declan Beetson
Mob/Identity: Gubbi Gubbi and Warajuri
You might remember me from previous DYA projects such as: Dislocated, Dislocated 2, Possum Skin Art closing, music, my 1 dance workshop, dance music, visual art, the dude who did the sound in Anthro Apology, the guy who wore the funny suit in the band for Losing It and the guy who whispered “find the spear” in DYA’s short film
Favourite episode of The Office: Michael Scott’s Dunder Mifflin Scranton Meredith Palmer Memorial Celebrity Rabies Awareness Pro-Am Fun Run Race For The Cure
Top three moments of 2017:
- Graduating High School (it was a struggle)
- Jungle Love Festival
- The Betoota Advocate following me on Instagram
If you could invite 3 people to the album launch of unsettle music, who would they be?: Phi, Steph and Gina because it would be really awkward if the band was missing half the people in it and I can’t sing as high as Phi can.
Any advice for other First Nation's youth?: Enjoy it, you have a connection to something that most people don’t have, when you share and learn your connection with other mob it is always a fun time, and mob always sticks together.
Who should we profile next and why? : D-MONEY (Dylan Mooney), because I’m low key hoping he will draw a mural for every answer, he won’t, but that’s the dream.
