Indigenous Australians have passed their stories down through the ages orally. Knowledge and history were only ever passed to the next generation through speech during ceremonies and campfire discussions. This makes indigenous people some of the worlds most experienced storytellers, with the ability to captivate an audience, regaling young and old with recounts of days gone by.

Great storytellers can engage their listeners even when the ending is known to the listener, so watch out for Kimberley Jiyigas ‘The Indigenous Storytellers Podcast Series’  coming in 2019!

In this series, some of the Kimberley’s finest indigenous female voices will share their insights, wisdom and experience of growing up in Australia’s last frontier.  We will be talking about the changes, the challenges and the aspirations of tomorrow.

There will in the upcoming months be a range of other products produced by Kimberley Jiyigas, so watch this space!

Her ‘get it done’ approach ensuring the project progressed as planned, whilst being flexible and adaptable when required.  Natasha was also responsible for the inaugural Wunan Expo event, staff’s professional development and team building sessions and various conferences attended by local and travelling delegates.

I have had the pleasure of working closely with Natasha Short in her capacity as an Event Manager, and her role as a key committee member co-ordinating high profile regional events.

Natashas enthusiasm and unflagging drive to deliver quality events on a regional level is inspiring. She has a rare gift for motivating others, and this, along with her strong networks and genuine commitment to community engagement, makes her an asset to the East Kimberley. She has an intuitive sense of process, is professional, highly organised, and pays meticulous attention to detail.

Natasha is a powerful and engaging public speaker – warm, confident and articulate. Most importantly, she is respectful of others and blessed with a lively sense of humour that makes her a joy to work with on any level.

I have full confidence in Natashas professionalism and ability to make a success of any project she undertakes.
