DREAVER, HAGER TO TALK INVESTIGATIVE REPORTING AT AUT
http://pacificmediacentre.blogspot.com/2010/12/barbara-dreaver-nicky-hager-talk.html

AUCKLAND (Pacific Media Centre/Pacific Media Watch): Anyone with an interest in writing, reading or studying investigative journalism, will benefit from a conference at AUT University this weekend.

Speakers at the conference, which organisers have dubbed a "fourth estate conversation", will examine investigative journalism in New Zealand and the Pacific, both now and into the future.

Many experienced journalists including TVNZ's Pacific correspondent Barbara Dreaver; publisher of the Nepali Times Kunda Dixit; New Zealand investigative journalist Nicky Hager; and director of the Australian Centre for Independent Journalism, Professor Wendy Bacon, will share their perspectives.

And for student journalists and newly qualified journalists a masterclass will give them the opportunity to learn about the techniques of investigative journalism from a team of international journalists.

"Our aim is to start a conversation about the future of investigative journalism in New Zealand and the Pacific. In particular, we will be looking for new ways to help investigative journalism thrive," says conference chair and director of AUT's Pacific Media Centre, Associate Professor David Robie.

"Cutbacks in specialist staff and reduced resources have had a negative impact on investigative reporting in many media organisations. This conference will focus on independent funding models and strategies in collaborative investigations, and hopefully lead the set-up of a new group to support investigative journalism in New Zealand."

The conference aims to raise awareness of investigative journalism in all its forms, so exhibitions and screenings of photojournalism, documentaries and multimedia presentations, are a key part of the programme.

A highlight will be the launch of the Frames of War photojournalism exhibition by keynote speaker Kunda Dixit.
