There is a strange silence around Aboriginality in mainstream Australia; an awkwardness and it frustrates me. Media and communications is a way to share our stories and take control over our own representation – to shake off the awkwardness and say, we are here, this is what we are doing. To normalise our lives and our journeys and take back some respect. - Jirra Lulla
Jirra is in the business of storytelling - stories of cultural knowledge and resilience, stories on how Indigenous knowledge can inform value-driven business and stories of diverse representation.
Join us on Friday 28 April to hear from this Innovative Leader.
Jirra is a Yorta Yorta/Wiradjuri woman from Melbourne and the Founder and Director of Kalinya Communications, an Aboriginal owned communications company. In the language of the Yorta Yorta people of Northern Victoria, Kalinya means good, beautiful and honest. These are Jirra’s guiding business principles. Kalinya specialise in the gathering and sharing of community stories and collaborates with Aboriginal consultants and purpose driven businesses to deliver event management, marketing campaigns and digital content.
