Goolarri Media is proud to bring you A Taste of Broome in 2017
LEARN THE HISTORY OF BROOME THROUGH THE SONGS, STORIES, PICTURES AND PEOPLE
2017 marks two very special moments etched in our local and national psyche. We recognise 75 years since the attack on Broome by the Japanese in World War II and the impact this had on this multicultural pearling town. We also celebrate 50 years since the 1967 Referendum in which Australia overwhelmingly voted to include Indigenous people in the census. The music, cuisine and entire experience is created around the distinctive Indigenous Culture within Broome’s multicultural community. Promoting the vibrant soul that is the essence of Broome’s identity through music, dance, food, arts & crafts, tradition and heritage.
Goolarri Media Enterprises is a fully owned Indigenous company through the Broome Aboriginal Media Association which was launched in 1991 after ten years of community discussion about the need for an Indigenous media service for the rapidly growing town of Broome.
Goolarri Media assists the development of both Indigenous and non-Indigenous media and communications in the Kimberley region, assists in the development and ongoing enhancement of Indigenous musicians throughout Western Australia, creates and produces valuable event activities for the entire community and delivers nationally recognised training across all sectors of the organisation.
Through dedication, passion and a vision for the future Goolarri Media Enterprises has grown in its capacity to become one of Australia's most successful and diverse Indigenous media and communications organisations ensuring it remains at the forefront of digitising culture and community.
