COMING THIS OCTOBER: CTIF & JAMFEST ’22 #UNPLUGGED
We invite African civic tech, media innovators, and global stakeholders to unplug but still connect through virtual and in-person engagement at CTIF and Jamfest.
Building on previous successes and lessons from the last five CTIF conferences, this year, the Civic Tech Innovation Network (CTIN) is doing CTIF a little differently. CTIF22 will be a hybrid event, featuring a full month exhibition, virtual events and a two-day in-person event. CTIF22 will have virtual sessions and activities from 03 to 19 October and the in-person event will be between 25 to 27 October 2022 at Tshimologong Precinct in Johannesburg, South Africa.
The convening aims to bring Africa’s small but active civic tech community which includes both governmental and non-governmental together for the purpose of sharing, learning, inspiration and overall capacity building.
