Conference 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.
