About Us

About Goolarri Media

 

Goolarri Media assists the development of both Indigenous and non-Indigenous communications in the Kimberley region, supports the enhancement of Indigenous musicians throughout Western Australia, creates and produces valuable event activities for the entire community and delivers nationally accredited training in media and events management.

 

Through dedication, passion and a vision for the future Goolarri Media 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.

 

Goolarri Media Enterprises (GME) is a fully owned subsidiary of the Broome Aboriginal Media Association (BAMA). BAMA 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.

 

Over the past 22 years, GME has transitioned from a traditional media service to a broader training and capacity building organisation with a vision to close the gap for all Indigenous peoples across the Kimberley region.

 

Specifically GME assists the development of both the Indigenous and non-Indigenous media and communications sector in the Kimberley region, develops and manages events for the local community with a goal of creating stronger social cohesion across the diverse peoples of the Kimberley and ultimately, invests into Indigenous people through education, training and employment pathways, leveraging its RTO status.

 

Goolarri Media’s organisational objectives and success measures are summarised below:

The BAMA Board consists of nine Directors, who are elected by the members of the organisation for four year terms on a rotational. The current Chairperson of BAMA is Mr Stephen Albert and the Vice Chairperson is Ms Kathy Watson.

The Board meets approximately every 6 weeks for a Board Meeting to discuss strategic policy issues and economic opportunities for both BAMA and Goolarri Media Enterprises.

 

The BAMA and Goolarri Media Boards have delegated all operational responsibility to the Managing Director and they do not get involved in operational matters.

Board members are assigned portfolios and work with Goolarri staff in their portfolio area, providing strategic and cultural advice and assistance.

 

The Directors of Goolarri are Mr Kevin Fong, Mr Stephen Albert, and Ms Dot West.

Between them they have a strong record of financial management, public service and experience as leaders, managers and Directors in the private and public sectors, the Indigenous cultural and the media industries
