Kwani? Digital at iHub: Content Meets Tech
Three months ago, Kwani Trust commissioned Digital Divide Data (DDD) to digitize some of its content as part of a pilot to see what possibilities lie in the content Kwani? has produced since its founding in 2003, and how new online and digital technologies could be utilised for content dissemination. To discuss its findings, Kwani Trust held an event at iHub in which content providers in the arts, culture and public media sector and online, mobile and new technology sector discussed how to work together. The event was held at iHub on Ngong Road between 11.00 a.m. and 1.00 p.m. on Saturday, August 25th.
