Abstract

This paper examines the contribution that a community newspaper made to a remote aboriginal community in northern Australia. Instigated by the researchers as a way to engage young people in the project, the community newspaper became an important focus of activity and learning, providing young people with skills and education around the collection, management, and dissemination of news and supporting youth to gain empowerment in the community. At the time, the researchers did not acknowledge this impact. This article discusses the development of the community newspaper, and the authors (two academics and one community member) reflect on the importance of supporting community development activities in the research process.
