ACMC highlighted in the Prime Minister’s Closing the Gap 2016 Report

15 Feb 2016

The ACMC is proud to be highlighted in the Prime Minister’s Closing the Gap 2016 report for the innovative approach taken in engaging with Indigenous communications company 33Creative for the production of its latest civil-military-police educational film, Working Together.

On 4 November 2015, 33Creative signed a contract with the ACMC marking the beginning of a strong relationship fostered under the Indigenous Procurement Policy.

The ACMC recognises that as a small organisation it needs to outsource expertise, and is using companies like 33Creative to produce high quality communications products for Australian government agencies and for the international and non-government organisations it works with.

It is very pleasing to see this high level endorsement of ACMC’s business approach as we strive to apply innovative solutions which support whole-of-government approaches in carrying out our mission to prevent, prepare for and respond more effectively to disasters and conflicts overseas, ACMC’s Executive Director Dr Alan Ryan said.

The ACMC anticipates a mid-year launch for the film, Working Together which will be a critical learning resource to support Civil-Military-Police leaders and their staff in promoting the importance of coordination in crisis response. The film is intended for use by Commonwealth and other ACMC stakeholders, including the United Nations, other governments, civilian organisations, the aid community, police forces and militaries.
