The Highway Africa Conference is hosted by Rhodes University’s School of Journalism and Media Studies in partnership with Corporate South Africa, development agencies and media associations.
For nineteen years the Highway Africa conference has been at the centre of Africa’s debates on journalism, media and Information and Communication Technology (ICT). The conference has over the years become the largest annual gathering of African journalists in the world.
Highway Africa has launched a weekly Twitter dialogue called #HATalk on a relevant issue to journalism, media and technology. Over the past months we have interviewed social media activists, freedom of information advocates, data journalism experts, fact-checking gurus, financial journalists and science journalists.
