National Media Dialogue, Africa Information Day celebration set for November 7th
Kigali- On November 07, 2016, at Marriot Hotel in Kigali, Rwanda will hold the 8th National Media Dialogue. The event is organised by the Rwanda Governance Board in collaboration with other institutions underpinning media development which include; Media High Council (MHC), Rwanda Journalists Association (ARJ) and the self-regulatory body; Rwanda Media Commission-RMC.
About 300 participants from local and foreign media institutions, policymakers, academia, diplomats, the private sector and other media stakeholders are expected to take part in the one-day event.
The 8th National Media Dialogue which coincides with the Africa Information Day will be marked under the theme “The Africa Media we want”. It will be an opportunity for media experts from different African countries to discuss how to position Africa media globally to ensure that the African story is told by Africans.
The event will be marked by a variety of activities which include; the official launch of Rwanda Media Barometer and the presentation of “Impamyabigiwi” performance contracts. The celebration will be crowned by the Development Journalists Award 2016, an initiative that recognises the best performing journalists in different categories.
The National Media Dialogue is organised yearly in Rwanda with the core objective to address challenges facing media with the aim of devising strategic measures to foster media development. This year, Rwanda chose to upscale the dialogue to another level in order to engage African media practitioners to take the lead in positioning African media globally.
