What does the future have in store for journalism in the 21st century? Is journalism soon to be an irrelevant anachronism, hopelessly undone by a broken business model, shortened attention spans, AI, disinfo trolls and chaos agents like Elon Musk?

Or are we on the threshold of a bold new era of journalism, finally unshackled from the reign of news chains, hedge fund owners, bland takes, and the antiquated printing press? Join us for a raucous debate, featuring some of the best and brightest minds in local journalism.

Come celebrate a major milestone for independent journalism in B.C. and be a guest at The Tyee's 20th anniversary “Debate-O-Rama” at The Rio on November 30. We'll laugh, we'll cry, we'll gnash our teeth as we commune over the challenges and joys of growing nonprofit, reader-funded journalism for the digital age.

This is not just a celebration for The Tyee, but for all journalists who are engaged in the craft.
Special musical guest: Rusty Ford
