The 9th True Stories conference in Amsterdam on narrative journalism, will join boundary-breaking journalists from all over the globe, to examine how we can use our storytelling tools to navigate a fragmented landscape of narrative bubbles.
In these times marked by protests, polarizing politics and prejudice; storytelling can bring us together or drive us apart. But how can we invite our audiences to listen rather than judge. And what can we gain from pushing the boundaries of our role as journalists?
This year’s conference will include masterclasses, panel discussions and some incredible speakers. Amongst them we have writer & educator Mimi Lok (Voices of Witness), documentary maker Hana Walker Brown (These Roads), photographer Anastasia Taylor Lind and journalist Thomas Rueb (Laura H.).
Leaving Neverland director Dan Reed will close this years True Stories with a lecture on Saturday May 18th.
