Disruption: Challenges and Innovations Transforming South African Media
News organizations are facing a rapidly changing technology and business environment. New platforms, new technologies and new business models are leaving many in the industry grappling with ways to adapt. These shifts are affecting how stories are reported, produced, and delivered, to increasingly savvy and diverse consumers. But these changes are also opening the doors for new kinds of storytelling, showcasing stories that couldn’t or haven’t been told before, being told in new ways and invigorating the entire media culture. Our series of workshops, panel discussions and networking opportunities are an attempt to bring these issues to the table so that we can support and enable journalists and journalism, serving both our bottom line as well as the public in ways that strengthen democracy, society, and good old fashioned storytelling.
Join us for two days of Interaction, Ideas, and Inspiration.
