Civic Tech Innovation Forum (CTIF) And Jamfest 2023

CTIN’s annual conference, the Civic Tech Innovation Forum (CTIF), enables the civic tech community and ecosystem actors to engage, learn about digital innovations, tools, processes and methodologies, share experiences, and meet potential collaborators. CTIF presents an opportunity to keep updated on the latest trends in digital innovation, policy, broader civic tech landscape, and presence across Africa. The conference also provides an opportunity for the Civic Tech Innovation Network to consult with network members to inform the design of future activities.

Jamfest, organised by Jamlab Africa, is a conference that brings together journalists, media managers, and other stakeholders across the African continent to talk about innovations, content, and audience analytics, among other conversations. 

These two events make up the joint conference, CTIF and Jamfest. CTIF and Jamfest 2023 will help us understand the possibilities of flow and how they can be used to create better futures for African innovation ecosystems. This year’s conference occurs from the 16th to the 19th of October 2023 at the Tshimologong Digital Innovation Precinct in Braamfontein, Johannesburg.

Our theme, #AfricaFlows, is inspired by Artificial Intelligence (AI), which is undoubtedly transforming and disrupting the flow of various processes in our lives. Our CTIF and Jamfest 2023 call to action is that Africa must flow. #AfricaFlows illustrates our confidence in our people’s resilience and ability to adapt to change despite our challenges. Flow addresses intelligence, expressions, experiences, conversations, and practices that could collectively steer positive impact. We believe that our communities of civic tech and media innovators symbolise our ability to flow, and we are ready to demonstrate that due to their innovation, creativity and resilience, #AfricaFlows

We look forward to welcoming you!
