Crossing Borders: Sub-Saharan communities of care & resistance · June
19, 5PM CEST

Disruptive Fridays #9 - Streaming on: https://www.disruptionlab.org/fridays

Global. That is the definition and the reality of a pandemic. Yet, most
attention and resources are confined by human made borders. Hosted in
collaboration with Bridge Figures, Disruptive Fridays #9 connects with
creative and activist communities in Kenya, Nigeria, and South Africa to
learn and share about responses relevant to local and global communities.

With: Sharlotte Kigezo (Psychologist, KY/UG), Peter Nkanga (Journalist &
campaigner, NG), Jedi Ramalapa (Broadcast journalist, ZA), Moderated by
Magnus Ag (Bridge Figures, DK) and Lieke Ploeger (Disruption Network
Lab, NL/DE).

Since the outbreak of COVID-19, an overwhelming amount of news and data
has been flooding us. The media coverage seems to focus on the national
and hyperlocal situation – while we are dealing with a global pandemic.
In this conversation we focus on the response of Sub-Saharan Africa to
the coronavirus outbreak, and hear from some of the people that work on
creating a conversation around COVID-19 – one that can contribute to a
more global understanding of what we are all facing.


# Speakers:

Jedi Ramalapa is a South African broadcast journalist. She is the
current Editor-In-Chief of a non-profit podcasting organisation, Sound
Africa; which aims to produce original narrative (audio) journalism
which upends the stereotypes and cliches about Africa and Africans. She
also hosts Sound Africa's newest weekly podcast series  Covid-In-Africa,
looking at the African response to COVID-19 and how it’s affecting
people on the ground. She will address the impact of the pandemic on
human rights.

journalists in Nigeria and across sub-Saharan Africa. In 2019, he was
awarded the “Jamal Khashoggi Award for Courageous Journalism” for his

deciding which goods, services and works to spend public funds on.

and spoken word artist  based between Kenya and Uganda.  She is
passionate about mental health and community-based programs that build

refugee communities and art therapy programs for the creative and arts
community. This being on the basis of mental health and factors that act
as triggers to mental health like experiencing traumatic events (civil

how we can best address mental health issues in these times, following
her recent work with both refugee and artist communities on mental
health awareness and forms of online therapy.
