Get Involved

Indigenous Digital Excellence is all about participation. Even though we’re still in the early days of our journey, there a number of ways that you can get involved—either behind the scenes or participating in these projects and initiatives.

IDX Hub

Are you working on a project related to IndigenousDX and would benefit from hot-desking or co-working in Redfern? Are you looking for a character-filled and adaptable collaboration space to run your IndigenousDX-related workshop or event?

The “Hub” is the working title of a soon-to-be-launched digital studio and innovation space within the grounds of the NCIE.

We have spaces available for co-located workers from the local community working on IndigenousDX–related projects to work alongside the growing IDX team. It will also be the stage for a variety of public events and workshop activities hosted by the IDX team and the local Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander community.

We are already fielding enquiries from people interested in joining us in the Hub once it’s fully up and running (ETA: April 2014). So please get in touch if you’re interested in participating in bringing this collaborative environment to life…

The Hub is the first step in our ambition to see Hub-like activities being established across the country. If you are based outside of Sydney and would like to contribute to this vision, please let us know.

National Strategy

Is your initiative or project related to IndigenousDX? Want to strengthen the voice of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples in the national dialogue about digital inclusion?

We recently developed a discussion paper outlining a vision for IndigenousDX (PDF 2.1MB) and related Summary paper (PDF 145KB) based on our work and research to date. We see this as a constructive first step in articulating a shared vision that sees all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples thriving in the digital world.

Our ultimate aim is to create a National IDX Strategy that provides a pragmatic and high-impact approach, engaging the public, private and third sectors, to achieving Indigenous Digital Excellence across Australia.

If you are an individual or organisation that would like to contribute to this process, please contact us with an expression of interest. You can also subscribe to our e-newsletter to be kept informed of specific opportunities for contribution as they arise.

Community of Excellence

The Community of Excellence has moved.

For the last four years we have inspired and empowered more than 1100 young Indigenous Australians to connect with each other in a safe online space, hosted by the NCIE.

Technology moves fast and we now know that young Indigenous Australians are engaging in social platforms like Facebook, Twitter and Instagram, to name a few.

We have decided to continue the Community of Excellence on these mainstream social platforms. We will continue to initiate interesting, meaningful and innovative conversations about Indigenous Excellence through the NCIE’s accounts on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.

We invite you to move over and join us, and continue to be a part of something excellent!

If you have any further questions please contact us at info@ncie.org.au

Share your story

Are you involved in a project that embodies IndigenousDX? Heard a great story of IndigenousDX that you want to share with the world? Are you a digital storyteller with stories of IndigenousDX from your community?

Our vision is to ensure that Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples’ voices are front-and-centre in the national dialogue about digital technologies and their impacts, so that our mob can benefit from and actively shape the digital economy.

We know how important it is for our people to tell their own story, and not be reinterpreted or misrepresented. We want to amplify the stories, and storytellers, of digital innovation through our work—from your perspective and in your words. So if you have a story of IndigenousDX, please get in touch.
