Pitjantjatjara Yankunytjatjara Media (PY Media) has been selected as the 2016 recipient of the Indigenous Remote Archival Fellowship, which will empower us to archive and preserve our invaluable audiovisual collection.
Through this opportunity we will be able to learn the skills to look after the incredibly important collection of video and audio resources that back to the early 1970s. Many other organisations applied for this fellowship however PY Media won this opportunity and will be sending three Anangu to Canberra to work with AIATSIS and the NFSA and develop the skills to care for, catalogue and make available to the community of APY the resources that make up much of the historical cultural record of the forebears.
Stay tuned to find out more about this exciting and important opportunity.
