Telling Indigenous stories from beyond the block is a panel discussion with Malarndirri McCarthy, Martin Butler and Kathy Marks which will celebrate the diversity of story-telling and the many new platforms indigenous journalists and storytellers now have space on to tell their stories.

The discussion will examine the rise of indigenous media into the mainstream and new innovations in storytelling and the implications for coverage of indigenous affairs in Australia. It will also examine the challenges and importance of meaningful collaboration and the experience of non-indigenous journalists in covering Aboriginal issues. The panel, part of the Walkley Media Talks series, will be moderated by Karla Grant of SBS Living Black.

This panel discussion will be held on Thursday 20 March 2014 at the State Library of NSW, Metcalfe Auditorium, ground floor, Macquarie wing (entry via Macquarie Street), at 6-7pm. Book now on eventbrite.
