Amplifying Indigenous news: a digital intervention


This project aims to road-test, document and analyse an innovative strategy for amplifying Indigenous voices in news media.


In partnership with The Guardian Australia and IndigenousX, it will deploy and assess the impact of a new digital application designed to enable access to a diverse range of Indigenous voices, stories and agendas. The anticipated outcomes include a significant increase in the depth, breadth and quality of Indigenous reporting at The Guardian, and the generation of new knowledge about effective strategies for improving Indigenous representation in the wider media ecology. These outcomes are expected to benefit Indigenous Australians by contributing to more informed and inclusive policy discussions.
