Creating cyclone recovery resources with the Galiwin’ku community
We’re working with the Galiwin’ku community to create a set of film resources to help people prepare and deal with cyclones that may visit the island in the future.
With the support of the Bureau of Meteorology, Northern Territory Emergency Services and Australian Red Cross, the aim is to create resources that are culturally appropriate, in Yolngu Matha, the local language, presented by local people and which provide access to information available to mainstream Australia that will help people prepare for serious weather conditions.
Through the Australian and Northern Territory Government’s Community Recovery Fund, Steph created useful high quality culturally appropriate Cyclone Preparedness short films for remote Indigenous communities. Steph’s dedication to working with Yolngu in remote communities and meeting the requirements of the agency was evident in the quality of the project and meeting the grant deadlines.
