PEN Perth – Robert Wood

Wednesday 30th May / presented by Simon Beaton

PEN International is one of the organisations that worked toward Australian journalist Peter Greste's release from an Egyptian prison where he was incarcerated in 2013 for reporting that was ‘damaging to national security’.

In 2018, Greste commenced his position as UNESCO Chair in Journalism and Communications at the University of Queensland. Greste is in Perth this week to chat with Victoria Laurie about issues of media censorship, freedom of expression in times of war, human rights, the role of writing, and how people can participate as private citizens in safeguarding democracy.

PEN Perth's Chair Robert Wood spoke to the Mag about the local chapter and this week's event at the State Library Theatre.
