About Us

The Journalism and Media Lab (JamLab) is a project of Wits Journalism and the Tshimologong Digital Innovation Precinct in partnership with Ryerson University, Toronto and Journalists for Human Rights.

JamLab aims to support more and better innovation in journalism and media in Africa. But innovation is difficult, risky and often ends in failure. JamLab supports innovation by providing innovators with information, inspiration, and networks to support more, and more successful, innovation.

Our online magazine and other digital platforms showcase innovations and innovators, share experiences of using new technologies and tools and provide access to research.

Our events provide an opportunity to share experiences, knowledge, and learning.

Our accelerator programme provides coaching, mentoring, working space, technical support and the opportunity to meet leaders in journalism and media as well as potential investors and partners.
