Saturday Day Pass

New News is a three-day programme of events on the future of journalism. It will explore how to make the most of the opportunities – and deal with the challenges – of new media. It’s about journalism as an act of engaged citizenship.

You won’t find a typical industry talkfest or academic conference. New News invites you to join an ongoing series of engaged conversations, designed to provide our community with occasions to talk about journalism – why it matters, and how to do it better.

Book your free Saturday Day Pass to reserve your place at all of the following sessions. Note that all workshop sessions are ticketed individually, and must be booked separately.

9.30-10.30am: LEAK! Why do people leak, and why should you?
11-12pm: Misogyny Much? The gendered newsroom
12.30-1.30pm: Prophecies and Mediums
2-3pm: The Glossies: What’s happening to magazines in the digital age?
3.30-4.30: Future Careers in Journalism
5-6pm: Justice, Journalism and the Law

Day Passes for Friday’s sessions are also available.

New News by the Centre for Advancing Journalism

How do you pick true news from fake news? How would diversity in senior and junior positions change the news we report – and how we report it? And does state politics need to be theatrical to be interesting to journalists?

Hear from some of the brightest minds in the media at this three-day series of discussions and workshops on the present and future of journalism. Including Brett McLeod, Katharine Murphy, Emma Alberici, Julian Burnside and more.

New News is presented in partnership with the Centre for Advancing Journalism at the University of Melbourne, and Monash University.
