Moving In One Direction

Friday, May 26, 2017

MEDIA RELEASE- Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander media workers and organisations from across Australia met up at the CONVERGE, the National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Media Summit, in Alice Springs on Monday 22 May - Wednesday 24 May. Older and new generations shared their experiences, histories and dreams for the future of the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander media industry. 
 
The delegates came together to determine the directions needed for the maintenance and growth of the vital work of the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander media industry for its remote, regional and metropolitan audiences. Forum Facilitator and industry pioneer Dot West said “It was great to see so many of our media organisations from across the country represented at CONVERGE. Everyone worked together constructively towards building a new policy agenda and direction for our industry – showing how we can achieve unity through diversity."
