JEANZ Conference 2018

(Te Auaha, 65 Dixon St, Wellington )

Welcome to the 2018 Journalism Education Association of New Zealand Conference hosted at Te Auaha New Zealand Institute of Creativity by Whitireia Journalism.

We welcome journalism educators and anyone interested in teaching and developing ideas for journalism practice to join us in our new purpose-built creative campus in the heart of Wellington, on the corner of Cuba and Dixon streets. The conference is on Thursday 13th & Friday 14th December 2018.


The conference theme is:

Creative tension - diverse form and function of the art and craft of journalism

Data speeds and affordability are opening up new ways of telling stories and reaching audiences for journalism schools and their graduates. They are also putting storytelling choices in the hands of diverse communities and cultures. How is journalism education managing the competing demands of these multiplying forms and functions? At the same time fewer people are considering journalism education, and the number of training options is shrinking. How are the tensions being managed between expectations of industry, the expanding creative possibilities for the craft, and fewer options for exploring it?
