Schwartz Media invites you to a morning of thought-provoking discussion at Malthouse Outdoor Stage.

Following the most disruptive year in memory, join editors from The Monthly, The Saturday Paper and news podcast 7am to explore what lies ahead in 2021.

What shape is our politics likely to take? What lessons have we learnt? What action might we expect on climate change or inequality? Will our leaders be changed by the crisis or will they be the same?

All these questions and more will be covered in the morning panel discussion, featuring editors and journalists from across Schwartz Media’s three titles.

Editor-in-chief Erik Jensen will host the panel discussion, featuring The Saturday Paper’s editor, Maddison Connaughton, The Monthly’s editor, Nick Feik, and the editor and host of 7am, Osman Faruqi and Ruby Jones.

Tickets are free but registration is essential. Group bookings are encouraged.

Schwartz Media presents Coffee and Headlines with The Monthly, The Saturday Paper and 7am on Malthouse Outdoor Stage.
