Conference 16th & 17th May 2019 | True Stories | Beyond the Bubble

In these times marked by protests, polarizing politics and prejudice, the power of the narrative is more apparent than ever. Storytelling can bring us together or drive us apart. The stories we tell might have the power to bridge the divide, but how?

At our 9th conference on narrative journalism, we join boundary-breaking makers from all over the globe, to examine how we can use our storytelling tools to effectively navigate a fragmented landscape of narrative bubbles.

Schedule 16th May

True Stories will start on Thursday May 16th with a series of industry masterclasses and a thrilling debate on where the line is and should be between journalism and storytelling.

Schedule 17th May

On the Friday May 17th, some of today’s leading narrative journalists and makers will host sessions discussing their own productions. 

Bonus Lecture

On Saturday May 18th, director Dan Reed will close this year’s conference with a very special bonus-lecture about the process to make one of the most spoken-about documentaries of the year: Leaving Neverland
