In response to the changing technological and media landscape of the late 1980s, Aboriginal Elders from Fitzroy Crossing lobbied for a radio station to broadcast local news, stories and music in Language.

Today, Wangki Yupurnanupurru Radio reaches over 40 communities. The station takes its name from the Walmajarri phrase for 'sending out a message'.

In this poster, words in Language are scattered around the edge, brought together through Wangki Radio’s logo in the centre and a gathering of footprint motifs.

Rendered in red, black, yellow and orange, the words and imagery imbue a strong sense of community and Language, ideas at the heart of Wangki Radio.
