The discussion features online policy experts, copyright lawyers, technology providers and content builders;

Kwani Trust is holding this event series as part of its “Telling Stories in Digital” project, which began with the digitization of Kwani? Content. This third session captures three of the four major challenges Kwani Trust has faced introducing its content to the digital and online market. An event later in the year will address the institutionalizing of digital technology & commercial practice, as well as challenge areas as outlined below;

- Current practical research on how artistic and literary narrative & expression is utilizing new online and mobile platforms
- Non-Profit Frameworks Within A Commercial Environment – How to integrate artistic and cultural institutional non-profit frameworks within a commercial technological environment
