IndigenousX was founded in 2012 by our director, Luke Pearson, as a way to help showcase and amplify a diverse range of Indigenous voices online. The project began as a rotating Twitter account, where a new Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander host takes over the account each week to tell their own story in their own words.
Twitter remains to be our most recognised and engaging platform to date with over 45,000 followers online and over 350 hosts taking over the account, but it has also expanded from its humble beginnings to developing partnerships with the Guardian Australia; crowdfunding platform StartSomeGood (with over $400,000 raised for Indigenous projects so far); a sister-account in Canada (@IndigenousXca);
The success of IndigenousX has lead to increased involvement in supporting a variety of related projects and campaigns, and accordingly we now offer a range of services to organisations, businesses, community groups, and research projects.
We have over 10 years experience assisting clients to improve their approach, innovate their projects and reach online audiences.
We are available to provide a range of flexible support and consultancy packages to individuals, groups and organisations in a variety of fields, including social media strategies, community engagement, policy development and evaluation, research, anti-racism training, professional development, and education.
If you have a call to action, be it an event, campaign, or opportunity that you would like to promote to our 23,000+ audience of IndigenousX supporters, we have a package that can suit your needs and budget.
