Surviving : Griffith Review

Adelaide Writers' Week - Wednesday, March 7 2012


East Stage, 12pm

In our increasingly connected age, disaster goes hand in hand with the immediate media moment. As soon as disaster strikes, reporters rush in, and so begins the story of survival. Join journalists Kathy Marks, Michael Gawenda and academic Tom Griffiths as they explore the ways we create the narratives of survival and the implications of those narratives on future disasters.

Chair: Julianne Schultz.
