As part of the Youth Month commemorations as well as The Daily Vox’s anniversary, we have put together an esteemed panel to discuss the important topic of the future of media and decolonisation in the media. Moderated by The Daily Vox’s co-founder Khadija Patel, the panel will be looking to consider how the media landscape is viewed by people who work within it as well as how media consumers view it.
