The Duke Menell Media Exchange Conference (DukeMMX), held mid-year in Johannesburg, provides an opportunity for interaction and exchange among South Africa’s media houses, non-profits, community and independent journalists, bloggers, tech developers, scholars and students. We aim to present tools and resources that offer practical ways for journalists to improve their work, create programming to build and support the media community, foster networking, collaboration and mentor relationships, and advocate for press freedoms to enrich and empower the practice of journalism in South Africa.

The Duke Menell Media Exchange Program is to create and support a sustainable and robust media community in South Africa and beyond, through programs, fellowships and conferences.
