Project Information

The Indigenous Media Map is produced as part of a larger project that investigates Indigenous media. The research project, led by Dr Elizabeth Burrows of Griffith University, Australia, considers community access to the internet and whether it is breaking down gatekeeper barriers and providing greater access for Indigenous and non-Indigenous communicators to participate in an un-moderated way in Indigenous and mainstream public sphere discussions. Contributors will be asked to complete an online survey. Content from this 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.

THE INDIGENOUS MEDIA PROJECT BLOG
The Indigenous Media Project blog will feature contributions from global Indigenous media producers as well as ongoing information about this project and published content. Indigenous media producers can volunteer and will be invited to write blog posts.

ADDING OR REMOVING YOURSELF FROM THE INDIGENOUS MEDIA MAP
Adding your media to TIMM is voluntary.  You can choose not to complete the online survey. Should you wish to withdraw your participation you should email your request to Indigenousmediamap@griffith.edu.au. If information about your media has already been included in published material, we will be unable to amend that content. However, we will not include your media in publication material after your notification is received.
