NG Media has received funding from the Indigenous Advancement Strategy of the Department of Prime Minister and Cabinet to conduct a training project in the local Ngaanyatjarra schools. The project aims to deliver training in both radio and film and has a number of outcomes - keeping kids engaged with school activities and wanting to come, giving them opportuniites to have a go at producing media that tells their stories and hopefully uncovering and nurturing the next generation of radio announcers and film producers - some of whom could work for NG Media in the future.
Last week, the NG Media radio trainer visited Warburton School and ran workshops that exposed students to some of the skills needed when working as a radio announcer - making announcemnts, interviewing and using recording equipment. As you can see, it was a lot of fun.
