Culturally Respectful Communication Is A Key Aspect Of Sharing Knowledge And Reconciliation
These projects rely on a basis of trust, honesty and authenticity. We are thankful to be guided by local leaders, gifted cultural liaisons and linguists. We’re appreciative of the guidelines provided by Screen Australia which provides guidance to pathways and protocols in storytelling with Indigenous communities.
A spirit of respect, recognition and reconciliation informs our work in this area.
We Are Committed To Helping Close The Gap On Indigenous Disadvantage
Be it collaborating with Indigenous thought-leaders and artists. Or advocating for health equity or celebrating achievements in Indigenous education. Moonshine Agency is committed to helping close the gap on Indigenous disadvantage within a generation.
We are encouraged by the findings of an evaluation of Moonshine Agency’s Take Heart project on Rheumatic Heart Disease. Because this clearly shows that our contributions are making a real impact.
Aboriginal And Torres Strait Islander Storytelling Is Important

Tell Your Story, Change The World
Creating A culture Of Change.
Moonshine Agency is more than a supplier of Indigenous video production services. The company also sees itself as an agent of change and it facilitates this change by activating audiences.
Moonshine Agency spearheaded an initiative to build a commanding Facebook presence on the Take Heart Project in 2018. We then worked with a variety of partners, including ANTaR, to activate that audience through 2019-2020.
Over 35 events around the country were staged around National Close the Gap Day.
At Moonshine Agency, we strongly believe in health equity and until the 10-year life expectancy gap between first and other Australians is closed, our work will continue.
