The Ethics of Representation in Media, Arts & Advertising

The Ethics Centre, Level 1, Legion House, 161 Castlereagh St, Sydney NSW 2000

Media, arts and advertising professionals struggle with their formal, social and commercial obligations to fairly represent society every day. It’s a big responsibility and challenging task – whether casting models and performers, curating an exhibit, presenting views in news media or sharing people’s stories through documentary and arts.

  • How do we represent views deemed unpopular by our organisation’s core audience but upheld elsewhere?
  • Are we responsible for exploring unfashionable ideas?
  • Do some people or groups deserve more representation than others?
  • What should that look like?

Join us as we explore the challenging ethics of representation.

Keynote speakers Elizabeth Ann Macgregor OBE, Peter McEvoy and Marina Go will explore the ethics of representation in their profession with an intimate audience at The Ethics Centre’s heritage listed Castlereagh Street site – one of the greenest buildings in the world. The audience is invited to engage directly with speakers in a Q&A.

This event is presented by The Ethics Centre.
