Event description

Description

The workforce of Australia's media and screen industries is becoming increasingly diverse, leading to exciting creative collaborations and opportunities. However, many insiders still don't understand why diversity is important and how to do it well. Our cultural heritages and lived experiences influence the way we think, talk and tell stories, yet our systems have a long way to go to recognise the true value of diversity in relation to creative work. As a result, practitioners from diverse backgrounds may find it hard to get a foot in the door, and those who have made it in may struggle to have their voices heard.

We need to keep working on making our media landscape more representative, and doing it well. Let's get it right in theory, as well as in practice. It's time for 'Diversity 2.0'.

Join our panel of industry insiders for a lively discussion that explores how change can occur within organisations. For individual practitioners, learn how to thrive and understand the value of your cultural capital, and appreciate how building personal and professional support networks that sustain your creativity and career.

We encourage all attendees to participate by asking questions on the topic of diversity in practice. You can also post your questions to the Diversity in Australian Media Facebook group if you can't make it in person.

Our panelists include: Daniel Browning, Kristy Best, Tasnim Hossain, Daniel Monks, Megan Riakos, Abubakr Mahmoud and Ana Tiwary (moderator).

The event organisers are members of the Diversity in Australian Media group including Sheila Pham, Masako Fukui, Anna Sabljic, Ana Tiwary and a team of volunteers.


FAQs


Do I have to bring along my printed ticket?

No, as long as you can show us your ticket on your phone.


Is my ticket transferrable?

Yes, if you book a ticket but find you can't make it, you can pass it onto someone else. So it's fine if the name on the ticket doesn't match the person who attends.


I'd like a media pass to cover the event. Who can I speak to?

As a not-for-profit event we only have a limited number of complimentary tickets available. Please email Ana Tiwary to discuss - ana.tiwary@yahoo.com
