This free panel discussion coincides with the Auckland Arts Festival and Auckland Theatre Company season of a theatrical adaptation of George Orwell’s cautionary classic 1984.

Is there more to say about this dystopian touchstone of privacy, surveillance and identity, 70 years since the book hit the shelves?

Chairing an informed and provocative panel is the author of the New Zealand Civil Rights Handbook, Tim McBride. The other speakers include one of the play’s leading performers, Terence Crawford, well-known blogger and media commentator, Russell Brown, and New Zealand’s Inspector-General of Intelligence and Security, Cheryl Gwyn.

This PrivacyLive lunchtime event is brought to you by the Office of the Privacy Commissioner and the Auckland Arts Festival.
