Black Star is proud to announce a new project being developed in conjunction with ACCAN (Australian Communications Consumer Action Network) to inform people in remote Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities of their rights when using mobile phones and the Internet.
QRAM and ACCAN launched this new project last week at Seisia, during the 16th National Remote Indigenous Media Festival.
ACCAN Director of Policy and Campaigns, Una Lawrence spoke of the benefits of keeping people informed about their rights when using mobile phones. She highlighted some of the pitfalls, including running up expensive excess data charges.
The series of short segments is being produced by BlackStar will begin broadcasting throughout remote Indigenous radio networks including QRAM’s BlackStar network in November.
QRAM thanks ACCAN for supporting this series and looks forward to making this information part of the BlackStar program and we invite any feedback or suggestions that you might have about the series.
