Talking to the media

There are plenty of great resources on the Mindframe website to help you talk to the media including:

You should also contact journalists and media outlets publishing and broadcasting in languages other than English.

That’s because people from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds, especially newer arrivals, might be reading, viewing or hearing news and information in their language rather than in English.

Multicultural NSW is a good place to get contacts, help and ideas.

You should also be aware of media outlets that speak to Aboriginal communities, such as CAAMA; NITV; Koori Mail; and PAKAM; and LGBTI communities, such as Star Observer and GNN.

Don’t forget that lots of information is exchanged and conversations also take place via social media or social networking sites such as Facebook. It’s a good idea to make sure that information and those conversations are safe, helpful and responsible.
