The International Live Journalism Festival (#ILJF23) is the second-ever annual event produced by a consortium of live journalism organizations and researchers. Presented for the first time in Toronto at Toronto Metropolitan University’s Creative School, the Live Journalism collective is an initiative supported by the Power of Live Journalism research project (2019–2022), funded by the Helsingin Sanomat Foundation in Finland, City, University of London, and Toronto Metropolitan University.

ILJF23 brings together the latest in research about this innovative form of live storytelling. Attendees can partake in incubators, listen to panels, and watch live journalism performances.
