Inside Wired and the Future of Digital News with Katie Drummond & Anita Li

April 11 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

What’s at stake when technology changes journalism? As we move deeper into a digital age, the way we engage with media – and the way it’s produced – is changing. What are the benefits, and the drawbacks, when technology intersects with journalism?

Katie Drummond, Global Editorial Director of WIRED, joined Anita Li, CEO/Editor-in-Chief of The Green Line, to share insights into the evolving world of journalism. WIRED stands at the forefront of exploring how technology transforms our lives, and Drummond has been instrumental in guiding the magazine through its digital journey. This collaborative event with the Toronto Public Library explored the innovative tools reshaping storytelling while broadening audience engagement and considers the intersections of technology, culture, business, and design.

How do these changes in journalism impact what we consume – and how we consume it? And how will technology continue to influence our access to information?

Join the conversation.
