Summary
"Gadigal Information Service Aboriginal Corporation ("GIS") recognises 22 years of survival in 2015 as an Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander community organisation, securing spaces for our mobs across the airwaves. GIS was incorporated in 1993 as an not-for-profit Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders community organisation. Honouring by name the traditional Gadigal custodians of the land in and around the Sydney CBD, GIS is a reminder of the tragic history of first contact in Australia and that we have never surrendered our cultural sovereignty. Founders Cathy Craigie, the late Matthew Cook and Tim Bishop saw the need for an Aboriginal owned and operated communication organisation in response to negative stereotypes portrayed by mainstream media. They had been inspired by the impact of Radio Redfern, which had given Kooris a voice during the 1980s with up to 30 hours of weekly broadcasts. GIS is the home of Indigenous community radio station Koori Radio, which broadcasts 24/7 to the Greater Sydney region on 93.7FM and simulcast as KR00 on Digital Radio, with live streaming via the internet. Koori Radio has a 'Live and Deadly' cultural mix of Australian/International Indigenous and black music combined with talkback, news, current affairs, chat and community information. Currently it produces five weekly programs broadcast nationally through community and Indigenous networks as well as national live broadcasts of major Indigenous events. It has an award-winning team of professional and volunteer broadcasters from a wide variety of backgrounds.GIS plays a leading role in developing and promoting the careers of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander musicians, broadcasters, singers and songwriters. Its Young, Black & Deadly workshops support the creative aspirations of under-18s in performance and radio broadcasting. The Gadigal Music Label develops new and emerging talents and supports established performers through presenting a range of recording opportunities and distribution for Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander music." -- From website
