Indigenous Community Television
ICTV delivers cultural and community video content to remote Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities around Australia, and beyond: enabling the sharing of cultural stories, song and dance, language and essential information through two accessible platforms – a television service and an on-demand internet-based service. They also produce, and support the production of, video content in remote communities.
'The vision of ICTV is to strengthen culture and community through the power of moving-image. Our purpose is to improve the lives of Indigenous Australians, especially those living in remote areas, through access to cultural and community video content.'
Their values include:
- 'Authenticity – The importance to all Australians of keeping Indigenous languages and culture alive.
- Autonomy - Allowing Indigenous people in remote communities to create their own media, speak for themselves and contribute to their own future.
- Innovation - Using up-to-date technology to re- share media with each other.'
