Discussion – Tackling Hate: Facing Up to Fear & Loathing in Aotearoa

Sunday 22 October 2023, 11:00 am – 12:00pm NZDT, Nelson, Aotearoa New Zealand


Join poet Tusiata Avia, activist Jennifer Shields and disinformation researcher Byron C Clark as they discuss both their experience of hatred and what we can do to protect ourselves and others. Chaired by Madeleine Chapman (Editor, The Spinoff).

Disinformation is false information created with the intention of harm – which can be directed towards a person, a group or an organisation – and it’s on the rise around Aotearoa New Zealand. In this session, the panel will reveal what it’s like to be the target of disinformation and what practical steps can we all take to prevent online hate and violent extremism. Building bridges for empathy, the focus of this session will be on personal experiences rather than theories.
