Amplifying the Voices of Young Indigenous Producers


We are really excited to be partnering with Yirara College in Alice Springs to promote the work of the freshest young producers in the country. Yirara College of the Finke River Mission is a boarding school for Indigenous students twelve years and older from remote communities in the Northern Territory and across the Territory border from South Australia, Western Australia and Queensland. This year, Yirara has launched its new Media Elective, set up by award-winning broadcaster Charmaine Ingram, from ABC Open.

We’ll be setting up a dedicated Yirara TV channel to share key information and media produced by the Yirara media students – especially the weekly Yirara TV Bulletins. By promoting Yirara TV Bulletins across the network of Hitnet Hubs, the partnership will increase accessibility to positive messaging in Indigenous communities; improve digital and health literacy, and connect communities, especially Yirara students and their families.
