Media Space

The Dolord Mindi Media Space employs and trains arts workers from Mowanjum Community in digital media recording, file management and archival procedures. Arts workers digitally archive historical audiovisual recordings repatriated and donated from external sources, as well as create new recordings. Many of these are shared through the community database called Storylines.

Creation of new artwork is an important focus of the Media Space, encouraging Mowanjum artists to explore traditional ideas and stories through new digital platforms, for example animation, digital photography, graphic illustration and video.
