DescriptionNavigating ethics in music journalism with human rights barrister Julian Burnside
Wednesday 21 November, MPavilion, free event
Join leading human rights activist and barrister Julian Burnside AO QC as he takes a group of specially selected artists, musicians, journalists, academics and music industry professionals on a hypothetical exercise where they collectively work through a moral dilemma to help navigate future problems.
In 2018 a small number of veteran music writers publicly fell from grace. Columns were cancelled and books taken off shelves and pulped, ‘never to be reprinted’. In this session writers and artists come together to negotiate respectful language and the impact of perceived and real bigotry.
Hypotheticals are prepared by advisors Dr Catherine Strong, program manager of RMIT University’s Music Industry program and Dr Emma Rush, a philosopher who teaches ethics for creative industries at Charles Sturt University.
The session will be overseen by a brains trust of senior music industry figures led by Helen Marcou of Bakehouse Studios.
Curated by Jessie French.
