When culture meets Media

Mail & Guardian, Africa’s first online newspaper, has a story
on how new media will help tell African stories.

When culture meets media, interesting things happen. A provincial premier gets pictured in bed; a bunch of fortysomething journos stage a reunion; and innovative publishing technology gets deployed.

It’s festival time in Grahamstown again — the 30th edition of an event that’s always like a first time. It is made possible by, among others, a healthy grant from the Eastern Cape government, whose Premier Nosima Balindlela was previously the province’s arts and culture minister.
