A season of events to accompany our Breaking the News exhibition
News has the power to make and break elections; turn everyday people into overnight superstars, and bring them crashing back down to earth. Continue your exploration of how we base our opinions, decisions and arguments on it. Join journalists, editors, writers and broadcasters to discuss how news shapes the world around us – and the way we make sense of it.
Speakers include Ian Hislop, Rana Ayyub, Amelia Gentleman, Sophia Smith Galer, Jennifer Nadal, Shrabani Basu and even members of The Magic Circle. Plus we’ll be covering freedom of the press, whistleblowing, war reporting, hoaxes, satirical opportunities as well as democracy and disinformation.Find out more about the Breaking the News exhibition.
