2018 Storyology


Storyology, the Walkley Foundation’s journalism festival, takes you behind the true stories that shape our world. This year, panels featuring some of Australia’s best journalists (hailing from the Guardian, Seven, BuzzFeed and more) will delve into the headlines to figure out what great journalism looks like, how it’s made, and why – more than ever – we need it. Topics include true crime, the #MeToo movement, books, media literacy and photojournalism.

If you care about truth, wonder about the future or just love a good yarn, Storyology is the festival for you. 

Explore the program in brief below, or view it in full on our website.
