NT Mojo

Nothern Territory Mobile Journalism

'The innovative NT Mojo mobile journalism (mojo) project developed by Burum Media, used iPhone technology to record, edit and upload stories to a dedicated website, designed by the project funding body, the Department of Families, Housing, Community Services and Indigenous Affairs (FaHCSIA). This affordable and portable technology enabled mobile journalists (mojo’s) from six remote Indigenous communities in the Northern territory, to work at a local level to create and publish their own stories. Ivo Burum, together with trainers from the project partner, Batchelor Institute of Indigenous Education (BIITE), travelled through a number of communities to identify potential mojos.  Supported by community based government representatives, mojos and a support person from each community were selected after consultation with community elders, who embraced the opportunity for their young people to tell their own stories.'
