Program Reports Page 45 Arts and Culture Indigenous Community Broadcasting Overview: West Arnhem Shire Council contributes operational support for 4 licensed Remote Indigenous Broadcasting Service (RIBS) units at Gunbalanya, Minjilang, Warruwi and Maningrida communities. RIBS aim to develop and broadcast programming that focuses on the promotion of local indigenous culture and languages(s) while providing broadcasting services that are able to inform and educate Indigenous Australians on accessing the range of health, legal, education and housing services available to them. Other program goals include to develop an Indigenous Broadcasting sector that meets all governance and business management requirements and providing opportunities for broadcasting workers to develop professional skills and experience. Progress: Maningrida Broadcaster Terry Pascoe has a live two hour show across the Northern Territory every Thursday morning, broadcasting through the Top End Aboriginal Bush Broadcasting Association (TEABBA) on 106.1FM. Broadcasters have been mixing their own advertisements and jingles in both English and Aboriginal languages on different services such as: health, community safety, money matters, education, nutrition and employment. Broadcasters attended technical training at TEABBA in Darwin in April 2010. Certificates in Studio Operations were awarded to participants. Opportunities: Two broadcasters are scheduled to attend the 12th Annual National Remote Media Festival on Thursday Island in October 2010 supported through TEABBA. Continue to utilise community media within remote areas to promote, educate and empower residents. Expand broadcasting into visual media, working towards recording and documenting Indigenous content within communities. Continue offering specialised training and support to Indigenous broadcasters.
