Griffith Review description
From the political to the personal, from the institutional to the intimate, trust is one of our go-to social adhesives. But if we are in a post-trust world – a place of pernicious political influence and fake news – how does that speak to power, truth and engagement? What are the opportunities for reform and agency? How can we connect, reclaim our power and trust once more? Explore these ideas and more with this Griffith Review panel.
