Outriders Summit 2018

Outriders Summit is an international conference organized by journalists for journalists. “Story first” is our theme for 2018.

26th September, Warsaw


After years of crisis, the value of good journalism is slowly being acknowledged. New, participatory models put the reader into the heart of good reporting and impactful stories come as a result. The summit provides a space for authors to share and co-create utilizing the power of technology based on a solid foundation of values.

We couldn’t have envisioned a better theme than the one that pays tribute to stories.

A story should always come first.


Outriders Summit is organized in partnership with the Adam Mickiewicz Institute. We invite you to join their Digital Cultures conference which takes place prior to the Summit, on the 24th and the 25th of September! More details here: http://digitalcultures.pl
