To achieve this, the MiC organizes a wide range of events, such as Fireside Chats, Bootcamps, Masterclasses, online training and Meetups, in which we invite eminent persons to share their vision for the future of journalism in East Africa.
The MiC together with DW Akademie and the Media Challenge Initiative (MCI) are the brains behind the East Africa Storytelling Festival (EAST project), which is planned to take place in 2021. The festival provides an opportunity for the smartest media innovators in the sub-region to meet, exchange ideas and explore new ways of storytelling. The cornerstone of the festival is set online in the EAST section of our website, as a virtual meet-up space for media innovation in East Africa. EAST offers a broad range of online-sessions and aggregates the best content and learning resources on innovation for media viability in the region.
The MiC is part of the Media Futures EA Project and is fully funded by the German Development Bank (KfW Entwicklungsbank). The key objective of the project is to strengthen the long-term viability of quality media in East Africa.
