Highway Africa

Highway Africa is a partnership between Rhodes University (School of Journalism and Media Studies) and the South African Broadcasting Corporation (SABC), with the support of several partners, development agencies and sponsors.

For fourteen years the Highway Africa conference has been at the centre of Africa’s debates on journalism and new media. The conference has over the years become the largest annual gathering of African journalists in the world. In the last six years Highway Africa has evolved into a multi-pronged programme with the following components:

Research: mapping the terrain of the challenges of the interface of technology, journalism and the media.

Education and Training: responding to the identified gaps this project makes a practical intervention by re-skilling, upskilling, educating and training journalists.

News Agency: a niche news agency with a network of correspondents across the continent it offers weekly news digest on ICT developments in Africa.

Conference: the flagship of the programme, it is the forum for critical reflection on journalism, media and technology and a celebration of Africa.
