Jamfest is a media and journalism festival hosted by the Journalism and Media Lab (Jamlab) at Wits Journalism. The festival is directed at a diverse set of African media makers and media publics. The festival presents an opportunity for media makers and media practitioners to gain an overview of some of the innovations and changes taking place within newsrooms across Africa. This year’s Jamfest will be hosted in partnership with the Civic Tech Innovation Forum, an annual conference that brings together Africa’s civic tech community, both governmental and non-governmental, for the purpose of sharing, learning, inspiring, and overall capacity building.
This year’s conferences will include a virtual expo, a joint opening plenary and closing plenaries with CTIN, workshops and masterclasses. Sign up for the conference newsletter for updates. Click here for more on this festival.
