FAQs

WHAT IS THE INDIGENOUS MEDIA MAP?
The Indigenous Media Map (TIMM) is an interactive map for existing Indigenous media and provides a networking tool for Indigenous media organisations, producers and audiences. TIMM provides links to television and radio stations, print and online publications, Indigenous media organisations, blogs and social media producers including Facebook, Twitter and YouTube users who produce and share informative or news content.

WHY SHOULD I GET INVOLVED?
TIMM is a free source of advertising for Indigenous media providers. Visitors to the map can search for organisations by media type or region.

HOW DO I PUT MY INDIGENOUS MEDIA ON THE MAP?
If you are an Indigenous media producer, simply complete a short survey about the media you produce and your work. The survey takes about 10 minutes – longer if you produce a range of different types of media.

HOW WILL MY TIMM SURVEY INFORMATION BE USED?
The Indigenous Media Map is produced as part of a larger project that investigates Indigenous media. Content from your online survey may be used in academic conference presentations, academic articles or as part of an online blog to provide community information about the use of online media globally. Completion of the survey will be seen as consent to participate in this project.

WHO PRODUCES TIMM?
TIMM is produced by Griffith University, Queensland, Australia as part of the ‘Online media: Investigating the use of online media in the global Indigenous public sphere project’ that is funded by Griffith University and the Griffith Centre for Cultural Research.
