Urban JAM Café: Reimagining new narratives
In this Café, we learn from some of Africa’s and Indian storytellers on the role of narratives we hold and how we are using these stories
As we reimagine the future of cities, of human society and how we live and intermingle with one another, technology and the planet — what is the role of the narratives we hold, and how are you using story / the narrative within your own pursuits? How can we transform ourselves and our society through our narrative(s)?

The “Urban JAM Café” series will be weekly “conversational” virtual sessions at the Urban Festival 2020 on the influential role the civic has played in media to influence public opinion & voice, and shape policy & governance in African cities. The series is organised by the Civic Tech Innovation Network (CTIN) in partnership with Jamlab Meetup’s Reimagining Journalism Series, and with support from KAS Strong Cities and Civicus.
The series has been framed in relation to four conceptual areas:
i. Reimagining public opinion and satire — WATCH HERE.
ii. Reimagining new narratives
iii. Reimagining new media and voices
iv. Reimagining policy and governance
Reserve your seat here for all these sessions.
