About the Event:

Digital technologies, social media and the internet have fundamentally transformed and opened up freedom of expression.
As we depend on them everyday, we grow more and more vulnerable to digital surveillance and violations of privacy that serve to censor, silence and threaten our health and safety.
On 17 Nov 2015 we hosted a dialogue with leaders at the forefront of confronting these issues at the local, national and international levels.
The event was filmed, live streamed and recorded by Mustangs TV, under the direction of Dan Durack and with the help of his student crew. I am deeply thankful for Dan’s expertise and generous contribution that made it possible to bring this dialogue to people around the world.
