Event description

Description

Migration is regularly headline news in Britain. The role of the media in shaping and influencing perceptions and debates about migration is one of the key themes explored in our No Turning Back: Seven Migration Moments that Changed Britain exhibition, and a subject that has sparked a great deal of discussion and debate among exhibition visitors.

Join a panel of journalists and researchers on Wednesday 9 May to discuss and explore key questions raised by the exhibition, including the relationship between media coverage and public opinion and policy, the representation of migrants and refugees in the British media and how it compares with coverage and representation elsewhere, and the ethics of reporting on migration themes.

Confirmed speakers include:

Liz Gerard, winner of the independent blogger of the year at the 2017 Comment Awards and former Times night editor, who contributed a display to our current exhibition charting all of the front-page migration stories published in national newspapers throughout 2016

Jakub Krupa, UK correspondent for the Polish Press Agency

Abdulwahab Tahhan – raised in Aleppo, Syria and now based in the UK, Abdulwahab is a Syrian researcher at Airwars with the assistance of the Refugee Journalism Project. He previously worked on The Suffering Grasses – a documentary about Syrian refugees which went on to win six awards.

More speakers to be confirmed soon. Following the panel discussion, there will be an audience Q&A session.

To ensure that this event is accessible to as wide an audience as possible, there is no fixed admission price, but we invite all who can afford to do so to make a suggested donation of £5.

This will help us to cover the running costs on the evening and to ensure that we can continue to put on a wide range of public events in the future. There will also be a donation bar serving a selection of drinks on the evening.
