The premiere Australian festival of journalism and storytelling is back in Sydney, and this year Storyology 2017 expands north to Brisbane, too. Brought to you by The Walkley Foundation, you could win a chance to network and mingle with journalists from Australia and abroad as they address today's big questions about the forever-changing industry.
What will newsrooms look like as new technologies arise and develop? How does one go about turning their stories into successful podcasts? How has the 'Trump Effect' impacted media outside of the US? Topics like these and many more will be discussed in conversations lead by Buzzfeed and Google executives, Pulitzer Prize-winning critics and journalists flying in from across the world. The Sydney lineup includes founding editor of The Wire, Siddharth Varadarajan, and Boston Globe art critic, Sebastian Smee, and in Brisbane, we'll hear from 2015 Gold Walkley winner at Four Corners, Caro Meldrum-Hanna, and Kerry O'Brien, one of Australia's most notable journalists.
The festival first kicks off in Brisbane on Thursday, August 24 with Storyology After Dark for a 'night of great yarns', then makes its way to Sydney on Wednesday, August 30, where it finishes up with the Storyology Socialon Thursday, August 31 — a celebration of all the issues, ideas and stories discussed throughout.
