IRCA is the peak body that represents and advocates for the media and communications interests of remote and very remote Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities in Australia. IRCA promotes the important role played by remote Indigenous media in maintaining language and culture and providing tools for self-representation and community development. IRCA supports remote Indigenous media organisations (RIMOs) that have played a key role in the development of the remote media and communications industry in Australia.
A few months ago we added Music to the IndigiTUBE platform to promote the work of remote Indigenous musicians.
You can now listen to over 200 songs contributed by NG Media, PAKAM, PAW Media, PY Media, Incite Arts, WYDAC and Nganampa Health. You can also download some of these songs.
If you are an Indigenous musician living in a remote area and want to share your music with others please consider signing up as a contributor to Indigitube. Our office is closing over the Christmas holidays but we will be taking contributions again in late January.
IRCA Manager Daniel Featherstone recently visited Radio '4 Meriba Wakai' (4MW) - 1260am to meet with the TSIMA Board to assist with planning the establishment of the Remote Indigenous Media Organisation. IRCA has offered ongoing support with the RIMO development.
