BushTV Enterprises is an Aboriginal Story and Social Change Agency registered with Supply Nation. Ernie Dingo is the Chairman and Tom Hearn is the Creative Director. We specialise in remote Aboriginal content and opportunity creation and produce story campaigns for Government, NGO’s, Aboriginal Corporations and Councils. We offer a full suite of digital communications including video, radio, print, design, animation and help our clients place their campaigns on Indigenous broadcasting platforms.
Storybus is our social change arm and is launching in 2019. Storybus is a mobile Aboriginal outreach service working with Aboriginal Controlled Health Services and provides remote people with direct access to culturally appropriate health services and referrals. Storybus offers a comfortable safe space (we often go bush and camp on country) and provides warm hospitality, food, tea, people to talk to and a swag, some spare clothes if required and a chance for people to share their story, culture, language and lore.
We work with our clients from the earliest stages of campaign development. We utilise our cultural leadership teams across Australia. Our team is multilingual and we offer community based messaging often in specific remote languages. Community based people are the experts of their own community and as such are an important part of all campaign development. We also help our clients place their stories on the appropriate platforms.
We believe that culturally aligned localised storytelling is the key to successful communication strategies. For us a national campaign is a series of localised remote stories in various languages representing the diversity of First Nations peoples across Australia. Put simply our mission is to deliver important messages in an appropriate manner and ensure the stories are seen and heard and enjoyed by the right audience.
We help both remote communities and all levels of Government communicate more effectively with each other when they have important messages to share. Our cultural leadership teams work collaboratively with Government to develop startegies that deliver key messages and at the same time authentically asserts the principles of inclusion, self determination and rights, health and well being and connection to kin, land and culture.
We tend to work with the same major clients year in year out. We prefer long-term partnerships rather than one-off jobs. Our expertise is story and campaign-ology. We work across video production, design and print, radio, web and social media in our campaigns. Our work mostly appears on Indigenous TV, social media, radio, web, large email lists, talking posters, community video and radio hubs. Sometimes we make stuff for national film festivals and conferences.
