Bamaga Productions is a full-service Indigenous-owned and operated content creation, strategy and events consultancy.

Founder Nancy Bamaga has dedicated her career to supporting the promotion, celebration and understanding of Aboriginal people and Torres Strait Islanders, their cultures and their legacy.

Bamaga Productions extends that commitment, by opening up wide-ranging arts, content and business opportunities for Indigenous and non-Indigenous communities.

Our team has a rare perspective of Indigenous arts and culture in Queensland. And, our sensitive approach to cultural development and business opportunities promotes understanding and respect for all cultures.

“Every Indigenous artist or performer has an important message to share about their culture. What I love is giving them the chance to do that, and to shine on the world stage.”
