Join Index on Censorship’s CEO and two powerful journalists at Write on Kew to hear how and why reporters take risks to get close to the action, and discuss the vital role women can play in bringing truth to light.

Index’s Jodie Ginsberg will chair a discussion between 2016 Index on Censorship journalism award-winner Zaina Erhaim and former BBC chief news correspondent Kate Adie. Erhaim is a Syrian journalist who returned to her war-ravaged country and the city of Aleppo in 2013 to ensure those remaining were not forgotten. Adie has reported from countless war zones. Some used to say you should get on a plane at any airport wherever Adie was getting off one.

When: 24 September, 6:30pm
Where: Kew Gardens
Tickets: £16 or £13 from Kew (Use code index at checkout to claim discounted tickets).

Write on Kew returns in September for four days of talks and events with a fantastic selection of speakers from Fay Weldon to Brian Blessed.
