Peace Journalism Workshop
18:58 Brian John Spencer 0 Comments
"The phrase “peace journalism” was found wanting by organisers and delegates alike at today’s workshop in Belfast. Partly because the journalistic ethics that apply to conflict equally apply to peace (and every other situation), and also because Northern Ireland may be on a transition between conflict and peace, but it’s definitely not yet altogether post-conflict.
The main speakers (Deaglan de Breadun, Mike Gilson, Jane Morrice and Malachi O’Doherty) and panellists (Laura Haydon, Alex Kane, Lyra McKee and Julia Paul) all had differently nuanced articulations of the role of individual journalists (and media organisations more generally) in covering conflict and peace, and differing notions of what constituted truth, justice and public interest."Check out my cartoons from the day above and below:

It was a great event and you can read more about it here and here. I have included a selection of photos of the pictures I drew on the day. I drew many more and because of the speed of production I missed the opportunity to record many of the images.Above right is my graphic depiction of Susan Russam, Chief Executive of GEMS NI. Below is a further selection of cartoons.
