Gadigal Information Service is a not for profit Aboriginal community organisation that is a media arts hub that launches creative Aboriginals around us into the space where they can perform at their best. Live ‘n Deadly As community radio station Koori Radio 93.7FM 2LND and Kr00 Koori Radio Digital, broadcasts live from Redfern. They have a recording studio that is available for hire as a stand-alone or with our own talented personnel. All hire supports the training and development program for young Indigenous musicians, producers, sound engineers, technicians and much more. Their outside broadcast van travels to community as much as funding and resources allow. Their outside broadcasting van also travels across NSW for their Young, Black & Deadly workshops, which build confidence and skills in Indigenous youth towards careers in media arts.

Their vision is to be the leading media/arts organisation for the aspirations, initiatives and talents of Indigenous people, creating greater appreciation and understanding of Indigenous culture within Australia and globally.

 Gadigal have always supported live performance and so they proudly present Yabun, meaning ‘music with a beat’ in the Gadigal language, their annual festival celebrating the survival of Indigenous culture, every 26 January. Koori Radio also proudly presents Klub Koori throughout the year, a moveable feast of musical styles that resonate with Indigenous people. Making this happen is a highly skilled team. They are committed to career opportunities in media arts for Indigenous people and have a proud list of alumni. Their development opportunities begin with Young, Black & Deadly, offering accredited media training for Koori youth and performance, songwriting and dance workshops. Confident and enthusiastic young broadcasters fill their 4-6pm Mon-Fri and are the future voice of their organisation. Creative musicians are drawn to their Kameygal recording studio, which is available for hire by all. Aboriginal performers are nurtured through their Artist Development Program, learning from professional mentors how to establish and sustain themselves in the music industry. They also offer development opportunities for Aboriginal sound engineers, producers, photographers, graphic artists and video directors.
