Un-Conference Looks at Rise of Social Media in Zimbabwe

This Saturday December 1, 2012, Magamba Network presents ‘The Hub Un-Conference’, a space where social media, art and activism will be discussed, analysed and shared in an open forum with some of the country’s most innovative creative minds.


The Galley Delta Ampitheatre will be the space where bloggers, journalists, artists and activists congregate for the un-conference which is set to be an evolving annual event.

Speakers include Nigel Mugamu (263 Chat), Takura Zhangazha (Voluntary Media Council Zimbabwe), Rutendo Denise (leading social media activist), Nqobizitha ‘NKO’ Mlilo (Nafuna TV), Comrade Fatso (Zambezi News), Larry Kwirirayi (3 Men on a Boat) and many more.

The event will commence from 10am and is open to the public with limited seating available.

This un-conference is an opportunity for a range of people to get together and talk about the developing new media landscape in Zimbabwe and share their different perspectives on new media, citizen journalism and democracy. The aim is to launch a unique space in Zimbabwe where there is cutting edge debate on new media and citizen journalism leading to new partnerships and an enhanced, unified new media community.

The Hub will happen henceforth once a year during Magamba Network’s Shoko Festival.

“It will be a space for critical analysis and practical demonstrations for some of the innovative new media productions that are coming out of our country” said Outspoken, well hip hop artist and the Projects Manager for Magamba Network.

Magamba Network has risen in the last few years to become one of Zimbabwe’s most dynamic organisations working on the cutting edge of culture, activism and new media.
