Journalism as an agent for change

  • presented by:

Friday 4 October , 8:00 pm – 9.00pm

Journalism was once a pillar in a democratic society, acting as the fourth estate. But in the era of “fake news” and as the line between non-bias reporting and opinion articles becomes more blurred, is journalism still an agent of objectivity and change? This panel will discuss the role of journalism in the current political climate.

Are you coming?

Our festival is 100% free. It’s always free. But this year, National Young Writers’ Festival is asking for you to register for the festival. Registering for our festival means you can help us maintain and secure our ongoing funding. We rely on funding to provide this opportunity to artists and audiences. We need to understand who exactly we provide this opportunity to.

Can you support NYWF?

During registration, you’ll see an opportunity to buy a NYWF supporter ticket. If you love our festival, we encourage to help support our festival by becoming an NYWF supporter. The “ticket” doesn’t get you into anything extra, it’s a contribution to support the ongoing running costs of our festival: which is 100% free to attend!
