Slow Journalism Night, 9th May 2019

The latest issue of Delayed Gratification is out in the world and we’re very excited – not just because we think DG #33 is one of our best issues yet, but because this time we’ll be getting to share what’s in the mag with you, face to face, at a special Slow Journalism Night in London on Thursday 9th May 2019.

If you can grab a ticket and make it along to the London College of Communication, we’d love you to join us. It’ll be a fun evening at which members of the DG team and special guests will reveal the stories behind our stories – and answer some key questions about the future of journalism.

We’ll be talking to award-winning Guardian journalist Amelia Gentleman about what’s happened since she broke the story of the Windrush scandal last year, and what it was like to be at the centre of a political storm that led to the resignation of then-Home Secretary Amber Rudd.

 

We’ll also be hearing an extraordinary tale from intrepid journalist Harriet Salem – who has reported for the magazine from across the world – about the rhino farmers who think they can save the species by feeding the market for its horn.

Our editors will also tell the stories of the technologists trying to beat climate change by sucking CO2 out of the air and spraying aerosols into the upper atmosphere, as well as sharing secrets about our award-winning infographics. Ahead of the talks there will be plenty of opportunity to meet and chat with the Slow Journalism team and other guests, as well a chance to win prizes including deluxe DG poster prints.

The event starts promptly at 7pm, but do come a bit earlier if you can – we’ll be mingling at the bar from 6.15pm and your ticket comes with a free drink. Tickets are £20, or £10 for Delayed Gratification subscribers, and include a drink and a copy of the new issue. Book your ticket here, and we’ll look forward to seeing you on 9th May 2019 – an evening that promises to be informal yet informative, fun yet fascinating, scintillating yet a little bit silly. So come along and help us celebrate the new issue! Slowly.
