About the Event
AGE OF OUTRAGE II HD Lord, what fools these mortals be!
Let’s have a conversation about today’s society —from mis- and disinformation, to identity crisis, from freedom of speech to cancel culture, and from political sloganeering to the power of the hashtag.
- Where do we draw the line between freedom of speech and hate speech? And who decides, anyway?
- Is cancel culture good for society? Is it a tool to seek accountability and justice or to bully and silence different opinions ?
- In a world of extremes, where we are so hostile and quick to take offence, where do we find the middle ground?
- Andrea Vance, Journalist, Author
- Rt Hon Chris Finlayson, Barrister, Former Attorney-General and Minister for Treaty of Waitangi Negotiations
- David Shanks, former Chief Censor
- Dr Bryce Edwards, Political Analyst and Lecturer, Director of Democracy Project, Victoria University of Wellington, Te Herenga Waka
- Warkina Tujuba, Head of Youth and Engagement, African Community Council Wellington
Chair: Maty Nikkhou-O'Brien, Executive Director, Diplosphere
- 5:15 PM - 5:45 PM : Welcome/ Mix & mingle
- 5:45 PM - 6:45 PM: Panel discussion
