Event Description

In nations that have been torn apart by conflict or have been repressed by totalitarian dictatorships, how do the people establish a free and independent press? 
What part does credible public information and free expression play in rebuilding a country and preventing a return to violence?
How can people and organisations respond in a creative way to the destruction and brutality they have faced?
What can we, as nations, organisations and individuals do to help and support the development of a free press and creativity in these situations?

This one-day seminar, brought to you by Redeye and the IWM North, will seek to answer these questions through a series of talks and panel discussion. The day will feature presentations from Iraq-based photo agency Metrography, Manchester based social entrepreneur and researcher Ruth Daniel and journalist and journalism activist Aidan White.
