The Religion Media Centre is hosting a reception following the inaugural religion and media festival ‘Exploring Belief’, at the JW3 Centre in London, on Tuesday March 27th. The festival has been organized by a number of organizations, with a team including our chairman Michael Wakelin and advisory board members, Katie Harrison and Roger Bolton.
Sessions from 10.30am – 6.30pm will offer a fresh look at the way religion is reported in the media, with panel discussions on whether the media is out of touch with faith groups; and the impact of the internet on religion. Speakers include:
- James Harding, former BBC Director of News
- Mark Thompson, former Director General of the BBC and now President and CEO of the New York Times
- Frank Cottrell Boyce, Screenwriter (Goodbye Christopher Robin, The Railwayman)
