What brings you closer to truth, also takes you away from illusion. The closest you will ever go to seeing the heart of the world is through journalism. It is the most widely spread profession that discusses the world but is seldom discussed. The share of stories might change over time, the storytellers may come and leave but the curiosity and the need for them remains the same. With an increasing level of the sacred games that take place behind the curtains, under the tables and in the dark, Journalism is catching up with its own value as the country realizes the need to discuss Journalism itself. To make both ends meet, an initiative by Vox Media Foundation called Talk Journalism has taken its form in Jaipur City. It brings to you the bold and the unafraid ones, the ones who are known to be the greatest journalists of the era.
Talk Journalism is a non-profit initiative base on the idea that there is an urgent need to discuss journalism in today’s era because it is the profession that discusses all other professions but is itself seldom talked about. It aims to skin down journalism itself and look at its aspects that have never been brought up.
It all started in 2012, with a simple tweet call to all the journalists to come forward and discuss the Evolution of journalism over time. After four successful editions of Talk Journalism since 2012 (2012, 2015-17), the fifth edition is going to be held in Jaipur from 10th to 12th August 2018 and Jaipur Beat is the official digital media partner.
The greatest attraction at any social event is its guests. The speakers for Talk Journalism include some of the most eminent personalities from the world of Indian as well as International Media and Press. Speakers like Barkha Dutt, Rajdeep Sardesai, Ayaz Menon and Jency Jacob are going to be a part of this event along with the others.
Apart from the talk shows and interactive sessions with the audience, various interesting workshops and mini events are also going to be held at Talk Journalism 2018 including a workshop by Google India, Unconference and Live Newsroom for aspiring journalists, and Lensbusters celebrating the spirit of photography. The event would be concluded with musical performances each day.
Talk Journalism is a great opportunity for both professionals such as reporters, editors and writers along with the students who are interested in following the path of media professionally.
The registration for the event is taking place online and is free of cost. So mark the dates in your calendar!
