In September, UTS journalism students were invited by the Judith Neilson Institute for Journalism and Ideas to produce a short documentary on the Antidote Festival, held at the Sydney Opera House.

The festival tackled some big questions – Who Gets to Speak, How to Cover Climate Change and of particular interest to journalism students, how to convince governments that see it otherwise, that journalism is not a crime.

So, Daniella Scotti, Rhiannon Soliman-Marron, Hannah Taylor and Georgio Platias, went along to hear the big thinkers ‘think through” these questions.

Here is what they discovered.
