NG Media is a thriving indigenous-owned media organisation supporting 15 remote communities in the Western Desert region of Western Australia.
From its hub in Irrunytju (Wingellina) community, NG Media runs the Radio NGM radio network and manages programs in video production, music development, IT training and support, training and employment, archiving and cultural and music events.
