Join us at the State Library of Victoria for our Aus–PNG Network Melbourne social evening. We’re hosting a panel with three experienced Pacific journalists – Caroline Tiriman, Mary-Louise O’Callaghan and Catherine Graue – on the challenges and opportunities of covering news in Australia’s nearest neighbour. We’ll be talking about how technology is changing the way Papua New Guinea gets its news and how Australians can better engage with emerging issues in PNG. Join us afterwards for drinks and a bite to eat, and the opportunity to chat to our panellists.

The Aus–PNG Network is a Lowy Institute project aimed at strengthening people-to-people links between Australia and Papua New Guinea. We host professional workshops, public events and an annual Emerging Leaders Dialogue to connect the next generation of leaders in Australia and PNG. Find out more about our work at our website: auspng.lowyinstitute.org. The Lowy Institute acknowledges the ongoing support of the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade for the Aus–PNG Network.
