Aboriginal Community Engagement

In Semester 1, 2015 four journalism students and five of their screen arts classmates teamed up with community groups that work closely with Aboriginal people in Western Australia. The screen arts students filmed and produced a documentary in partnership with Kinship Connections WA. The journalism students wrote, photographed and produced independent works of Indigenous affairs journalism while building relationships with Noongar Radio, The Wirrpanda Foundation, and the Deaths in Custody Watch Committee WA Inc. We thank all our community partners, without whom the following collection of stories from the journalism students would not have been possible.
