Join us to discuss: The best of independent journalism – what did we learn? 25 years of hidden stories – where are they now? What do the public right to know and independent journalism mean now?
The Australian Centre for Independent Journalism has made a significant contribution to journalism and has been a strong advocate for the public right to know and the role of journalism in strengthening democracy.
In its more than 25-year history, the ACIJ collaborated on major investigations with a wide range of media outlets and was involved in both national and international research collaborations such as the Global Environmental Journalism Initiative.
If you believe, as we do, that independent journalism has a vital role to play in strengthening democracy, we invite you to join us and pay tribute to hidden stories past and present and the legacy of the Australian Centre for Independent Journalism.
