Femi discusses why Al Jazeera’s award-winning social media show The Stream is such a great format for connecting Africans in debate.
Featuring some of the most dramatic moments, contentious and passionate The Stream clips from all over the continent as well as some behind-the-scenes revelations about how the show is put together, ending with an impromptu Stream debate live on stage. If you’re in the audience for Femi’s keynote you could be in the SMW Lagos edition of The Stream.
The Stream is a phenomenon begun by Al Jazeera – a web community with its own daily TV show. This award-winning programme taps into the extraordinary potential of individuals, through social networks, to disseminate news and information. The viral nature of social media allows for news and information to spread and advance rapidly. While these developments have the potential to generate more heat than light, to a broadcaster like Al Jazeera they are also an opportunity to reach news and voices in places and levels previously impossible – expanding and enhancing Al Jazeera’s mission of giving voice to the voiceless.
Later in the evening from 8:00pm - 9:15pm, She will host a Tuesday special edition of Al Jazeera Presents: The Stream live screening and tweet-in with Femi Oke... #SMWexperience Hub @ Four Points Got opinions?
