Eora Nation (Sydney) is the next meeting ground for CONVERGE; First Nations Media National Conference. Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander media professionals and organisations will gather from 21–23 November for the annual conference, with the inaugural First Nations Media Awards and the official launch of indigiTUBE on the Friday evening. 

Delegates will explore and discuss policy around the vital role of First Nations media in Australia and hear from organisations that are benchmarking excellence. CONVERGE also provides an opportunity for media to discuss and self-determine how First Nations stories are reported and shared.

The conference will also include the Annual General Meeting which will report on First Nations Media Australia’s interactions with government and other agencies, and allow members to inform First Nations Media Australia on future directives for the coming year.
