The Kenya Media Week 2019 was the second such event since 2018 and was designed to enable reflection and discussion around contemporary journalism. Through master classes, panel discussions, and presentations, the participants talked to one another, tried various technologies, tested new skills, and tabled ideas. The events brought together a range of media fraternity members – including journalists, content creators, bloggers, media entrepreneurs, researchers, and interested citizens.
The Kenya Media Week was held over three days in September 2018 and drew together practicing and aspiring members of the media fraternity. Their focus was to discuss matters affecting contemporary Kenyan journalism around three thematic areas, namely: fake news and the media; money and the media; and media and democracy.
