Registration for Africa’s biggest conference for journalists, media scholars and NGOs working in the media, the 2021 Highway Africa (HA) summit conference, opens today and closes at the end of business on 18 June 2021. The conference will be held virtually because of Covid-19. The HA summit returns after a short hiatus to take a deep dive into the future of African media and journalism, which have been severely disrupted by a variety of local and international challenges, including the increasing domination of the industry by the global technological platforms.
A line-up of top world-class speakers will lead high-level and cross-cutting debates that will seek to offer practical and workable initiatives that media and journalism could take on board to try to reverse an unprecedented slide in their economic and financial fortunes. The speakers have been drawn from a variety of academic disciplines and from media experts who daily trouble-shoot on the ground to seek innovative solutions – some of which fail while others succeed – to an industry that is staring an existential crisis. Book your front-row seat at the conference early by visiting and registering on the HA website at https://highwayafrica.ru.ac.za. Should you have any questions or encounter any problems with registration, please contact Mbali Buthelezi on +27 46 603 8949 or email her on m.buthelezi@ru.ac.za
