Through The Dust: Birdsville aims to raise $10,000.00 for beyondblue and attempts to share methods of coping with mental health issues through an entertaining and typically Australian web series.
Through The Dust: Birdsville is the concept of two high school mates, fueled by a desire for adventure.
Developed in a beer garden in Fitzroy North, what was initially an idea for weekend rides and a web-series, has now developed into a major project with a driven focus in widening the community’s awareness of Mental Health issues and their impacts on young males.
Headed by Navy seaman turned Fire Fighter, Gerard Reeves, and Music Industry Professional Brendan Ryder, this not-for-profit project was inspired by personal experiences within these two emotionally demanding careers.
This web based series will follow these two amateur adventurers from their hometown of Rutherglen, VIC all the way to The Birdsville Hotel, QLD on motorbikes.
