Establishment of a Local Community Storylines Website

A local Community site is established within NSW through consultation and in partnerships with the local AECG, Community members, local Aboriginal organisations, the wider community and schools. The local AECG is the primary community body through which all other participants will seek approval of contributed content to be made publicly available.

The local AECG determines:

  • The naming of the local Community site
  • Approval of all content to be made publicly available
  • The geographical area that the site will support

Outside NSW, in the absence of a local AECG, Storylines will work with the registering party to connect them with a local Aboriginal organisation and/or establish a local Community committee to consult around content to be shared.

Registering a site:

Community members, local Aboriginal organisations, the wider community and schools can register to establish a Community site. Upon receiving a registration a Storylines representative will establish a connection to the nearest local AECG for the registering stakeholder, the connected local AECG will then determine if the registration can progress.

In the absence of a local AECG, Storylines will work with the registering party to connect them with a regional AECG or a local Aboriginal organisation, and/or establish a local Community committee to consult around content to be shared.
