We are an innovation-driven centre building a community of daring media innovators. The Aga Khan University Media Innovation Centre (MiC), is where fascinating people gather to innovate, share and collaborate. Our community is built on trust, adventure, learning and long term symbiotic relationships. We have loads of benefits for our community, some customized to fit the specific needs of our community members.
Through our partnership with the DW Akademie and access to the global Aga Khan Network, the community gets a truly fulfilling learning experience. From interacting with the experts to building networks and engaging with various stakeholders to bring about positive change in the East African media landscape.
We boast a diverse pool of media innovators and practitioners shaping the media space in East Africa. From international award-winning journalists to techies and media start-ups in different sectors. We invite you to meet our community members and get to know and hear first-hand about their contributions.
