Our organisation takes pride in its record of advancing the cause of Indigenous economic development.<p>

We see the accumulation of assets and participation in the mainstream economy as one of the significant opportunities for Australia's Indigenous peoples.<p>

It is also a means of ending the poverty to which so many of our people are subjected to and that so often ends in unacceptably high levels of poor health, rates of imprisonment and a number of other social problems being experienced in our communities.<p>

<h2>Vision:</h2>

Goolarri Media Enterprises is one of the most vibrant Indigenous media and communications enterprises in Australia. With only a very small budget Goolarri has proved that it has the know-how, spirit and culture to become a major Indigenous enterprise. Because of our unique location in Broome, our strong connections with communities across the top end of Australia, the successes we have had in mainstream radio and television and our industry-based training and education strategy, Goolarri is a magnet for Indigenous young people from all over Australia.

<h3>Production Information</h3><p>

From the recent publication by Magabala books, <i>Out of the Desert</i> is a series of first hand stories from the Walmajarri people who emerged from the Great Sandy Desert for the first time in the mid-twentieth century. These are stories of first contact from an Aboriginal perspective. The stories are told in the colourful patois of art and performance as well as traditional languages.

<i>Forbidden Love</i> is a feature film about an 18 year old, Alan Thompson, who is in a rut and his only escape from the doldrums of life is to end it now! But things are not that clear cut! His mother intervenes and the recovery process reveals that he's adopted. So Alan, with a new perspective on life, heads north to find his biological family. While pursuing his birth parents via a departmental paper chase, Alan discovers the culture of Broome, in North Western Australia.

<i>On the Edge</i> is a 13x one hour drama series. Pindan Media is a small town communications and entertainment company representing a local melting pot of nationalities. Minority groups are the driving force behind Pindan. But on a shoe string budget, too many egos and not enough hours in the day, obstacles abound. Passions and tempers run high. The staff wade their way through the murkiness of politics and dark secrets to define their own stories with a real edge to them.

Fitzroy Xpress are Danny Marr, Alan McLarty, Raymond Marr, Victor (Lane) Marr, Waylon Marr and Danny Keogh. Their music is a unique blend of country, rocknroll and reggae. They are living legends throughout the Kimberley region in Western Australia. Hailing from Darlngunaya community near Fitzroy Crossing, they formed the band over 20 years ago whilst they were still at school.<p>

Fitzroy Xpress music is unique and so is their songwriting, with all of the band picking their favourite things like hunting, and writing some lyrics about it.<p>

The Kimberley is one of the last great frontiers in Australia and is a major attraction for travellers who want more than a resort holiday.<p> <i>Off the Beaten Track</i> is a Leyland Brothers Adventure Series with a difference.<p>

Although the event is all about glitz, glamour and fun entertainment the true value of Kimberley Girl lies in the important social benefits it will deliver to the contestants and audience members.<p>

Perhaps you are an AFL talent recruit? Or someone who has moved away from the Kimberley that wants to keep up with WKFA action? Or maybe you are a Saints supporter looking for a permanent record of the great Grand Final victory? Or maybe you want to simply support the development of Goolarri Television and Film Production? Which ever of these options this trading floor entry gives you the opportunity to purchase a copy of the Saints versus Bulls action in 2005. <p>
