This month's free event is in collaboration with the Storyology (https://storyology17.sched.com/) conference, being held at The Powerhouse. It's a great event, and you should definitely go along if you can.

Our main guest for the night will be Irene Jay Liu who leads Google News Lab (https://newslab.withgoogle.com/) in the Asia-Pacific region. She develops partnerships and programs to promote newsroom innovation and use technology to enhance reporting and storytelling.
