During this virtual panel discussion at the Journalism and Media Festival (Jamfest) 2022 organised by Jamlab Africa, we held an insightful discussion on Data Driven Storytelling. This session was in collaboration with Fringe Graph.

Our power-packed speakers included:
– Wairimu Macharia, Co-Director and Founder, Kenya
– Martin K.N Siele, Contributor, Quartz, Kenya
– Edith Magak, Journalist, NAM aidsmap, Kenya

Session description:
The art of telling a story through data and visualization is becoming ever more popular. Data-driven communication, or “data storytelling” is being used by journalists to convey their topics in clear and simple ways that reach broader audiences. Hear from those disrupting the industry and reshaping the future of news.

Wairimu Macharia, a digital communications consultant and director of Fringe Graph, will host Edith Magak and Martin Siele, budding data journalists and Baraza-Fringe data storytelling fellows. They will share their experiences in using data storytelling to make their stories more meaningful and effective, and how data visualization has made their stories more accessible.
