Fake News!

Thu 16 Apr 2020

*THE WORKSHOP IS POSTPONED DUE TO THE COVID-19 CRISIS. A NEW DATE WILL BE ANNOUNCED SHORTLY*

To kick off this season's STORYOPOLIS theme, Nino Williams (senior reporter at Wales Online) is providing a free two-hour workshop on FAKE NEWS.

It's a huge subject, but this interactive workshop from a journalist's perspective will touch upon:

The history of disinformation.
Journalism in the digital age.
Ethical obligations.
Whose interests should a journalist serve?
Propaganda.
Erosion of trust in news brands and journalism.
Fact-checking, accuracy, independence, fairness, and perspective.

This will be part of an ongoing project here at Storyopolis, with a schools symposium planned for later in the year.

Ages 12+. Limited Places. Booking recommended.
Thursday April 16th. 11am - 1pm. Volcano Theatre, High Street.
EMAIL TO BOOK!
