Zimbabwe’s leading annual gathering on digital media, civic tech, and the creative economy, is back for 2024! We are excited to invite dynamic speakers and engaging session proposals for this year’s event, which will take place from the 24th to the 25th of September in Harare. The “Level Up” theme represents our collective pursuit of progress, innovation, and positive social change during trying times. We’ll explore how during a time of war, fake news and climate breakdown we can use digital media, civic tech, and artistic activism to “level up” together including voices from the margins, driving meaningful conversations, and finding solutions for some of our big societal and planetary problems.
