Turkish-Australian creative working across emerging community arts and youth advocacy. I am concerned about the lack of inclusive representation in the Australian media landscape. My vision is to create a platform for diverse youth voices to broadcast stories and have conversations about their own authentic experiences, to lead on decisions that impact them. I've been developing my professional practice since early 2017, and have collaborated on projects with multiple community broadcasters, schools, community groups and peak bodies. My experience is focused on youth-led self determination and participation focused practice.

Half a room of community broadcasters are about to celebrate a significant milestone. So how best to prepare and make the most of a station's archive and history?


SYN Media is growing up and moving into its first share house. The Melbourne youth community broadcaster has secured a new CBD co-working space with more media production and training opportunities for young Australians than ever before.


The CBAA Conference is back for another year and we're bringing you the knowledge and ideas you need to continue best serving your community. Join us from 24 - 27 October in Melbourne to be inspired by community broadcasters and experts from across the country. We're thrilled to announce the full program.
