Torres Strait Artist Media and Communications Mentorship
26.03.24

When our friends at Agency Projects asked us to devise a strategic communications mentorship program for participants in “the most significant exhibition of Indigenous Australian art ever staged in the United States” we quickly got to work!

With the Charlottesville Indigenous Art Takeover 2024 fast approaching, representatives from the three participating organisations – Moa Arts, Badu Art Centre, and Erub Arts – undertook a four-part mentorship program that covered a variety of topics and practical skills, including how to identify and craft key messages, the power of storytelling, and the importance of relationship building.

At its best, strategic communications propels the work and vision of great individuals, businesses, and organisations further, which is precisely what we hope we’ve achieved through inclusive mentorship.
