All Roads Head to Red Dust Country

Over 150 delegates converged on the Northern Peninsular Area last week (September 22-26) for the 16th Annual National Remote Indigenous Media Festival.

This years festival was hosted by IRCA in conjunction with QRAM and the Northern Peninsula Area Regional Council. It is the first time the festival has been held in the area. Delegates came from as far away as Broome and Derby in WA as they celebrated their achievements, shared ideas, learnt new skills and made new friends.

The logistics of holding the festival were enormous and required many hours and days of planning and hard work. Everyone agrees that it was an amazing festival and the outcomes will affect that way we do things well into the future.

Our thanks to all who made the big effort to get to the NPA this year. The NPA is a special place and holds a natural beauty that cannot be explained fully until you visit. For the many festival delegates and guests it was a chance to experience the revolutionary hi-tech systems being deployed by the Black Star Radio Network as they visited the local RIBS at Bamaga.
