What does it mean to have restraints on freedom of expression? What does it mean to be a writer and reader in a human rights framework? Writer and journalist Antony Loewenstein, co-editor of Left Turn and author of The Blogging Revolution, explores the meaning of Sydney PEN’s cornerstone belief: freedom to write, freedom to read. Join us for this address, which launches Sydney PEN’s “Free Voices: Freedom of Expression in a Time of Complacency” lecture series.

Presented by Sydney PEN.
