Facts and Fiction: Education, Communication and Access to Information

October 21, 2021 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm

$5 – $15


Part 1: Expert panel + Q&A
Part 2: Supper and networking on the State Library Queensland Terrace

Join us at State Library Queensland for an evening of connection and conversation ahead of UNESCO’s Global Media and Information Literacy week.

COVID-19 has highlighted the need for a wholistic approach to achieving media and information literacy for all. As global citizens, our collective competency to think critically and contribute carefully really matters – particularly in a landscape of increasing disinformation and political polarisation.

We’ll explore the role of education and curriculum, the responsibilities of communication, journalism and the media, and the critical importance of public information resources, spaces and services, such as libraries, in reducing vulnerability.

Hear our panel of experts discuss their experience and research in the Australian context and abroad, and come with your questions for a dynamic Q&A.

We’ll then continue the conversation on the State Library Terrace, with light refreshments included!
