The “Urban JAM Café” series will be weekly “conversational” virtual sessions on the influential role the civic has played in media to increase public opinion & voice, and shape policy & governance in cities at the Urban Festival 2020, South Africa. The series is organised by the Civic Tech Innovation Network (CTIN) in partnership with Jamlab Meetup’s Reimagining Journalism Series.
This week is a storytelling session on how can we transform ourselves and our society through our narrative(s)? As we imagine the future of cities, of human society and how we live and intermingle with each other, technology and the planet – what is the role of the narratives we hold, and how are you using story/narrative in your own pursuits? In this Café, we jam with some of Africa’s current exciting story tellers to find out about their platforms, journeys, perspectives and experiences.
This session was hosted by Noni Khumalo, with live music and a Folklore Storytelling experience by Pilani Bubu.
