NewsFlash! Croakey readers are invited to join us for two very special events in Sydney on Saturday, 13 October.
These events are co-hosted with the Girra Maa Indigenous Health Discipline at UTS.
Walk and talk with us on a #CroakeyGO, an act of walking journalism that will take us from Marrickville to the UTS campus on Broadway.
This will be a chance to explore the secret history of this ancient landscape, with time for interviews and discussions about contemporary health issues and concerns.
Details of the itinerary will be announced closer to the time. This is a free event.
Using Freedom of Information (FOI) as a tool for public health
This practical, interactive workshop with civic technologist Henare Degan will support participants to develop a better understanding of how to use FOI for public interest investigations and public health. It will be useful for community members and groups, NGOs, researchers, journalists, students, and others with an interest in holding power to account.
Participants will be assisted to lodge an FOI request.
There will be a charge for this event. Further details will be provided soon. To lodge an expression of interest, please contact info@Croakey.org.
There will be live tweeting and Croakey coverage from both these events.
