On the Frontline: Multicultural Media’s Vital Role in Public Interest Journalism

This is a rare opportunity to convene and hear a range of speakers discuss the role of multicultural media in public interest journalism. Key questions for discussion include how multicultural media engage their communities at times of crisis; multicultural media’s relationship with government; what are the next best steps for multicultural media to strengthen its cross-platform journalism; and what does the “public’’ in public interest journalism mean in the multicultural context.

Hear from our special guests: Kos Samaras, of RedBridge Group, Anthea Hancocks, of the Scanlon Foundation and prominent figure in Australian multiculturalism Dr Hass Dellal.

In addition, there will be two panel discussions, canvassing current issues of government engagement, crisis communications and digital transformation.
