Event description

Description

Australia’s premier festival of journalism and storytelling is back in Brisbane this July 27-28.

At Storyology, the Walkley Foundation for journalism takes you behind the true stories that shape our world. We’ll showcase the journalists, photographers and media-makers who bring the truth to light – and explore the very real impact that their journalism has on people’s lives. This is the real news.

Storyology will feature a series of discussions about journalism and media, and its impact. Expect gripping conversations on topics like trust in media, true crime, the #MeToo movement, identity, media literacy and more.

If you care about truth, wonder about the future or just love a good yarn, Storyology is the festival for you. There has never been more important to support quality journalism.
