Journalists, storytellers — we invite you to join us at the II International Summit for journalist and storytellers organised in Warsaw, Poland on November 21–22. 

Why?

We have all heard that journalism is in crisis; you can only work on a good story pro publico bono, and no one wants to read it anymore. It doesn’t sell unless it clicks…

Outriders Stage wants to address something different: There is a lot of innovation happening both in media and in storytelling right now.  We want to invite journalists on stage and shine a light on the amazing work they are doing. We are in a historical moment of a big transformation in how we communicate and there is nothing more important to do now than to come together. We invite you to join a conversation about the future of storytelling and about how we can better connect with each other. 

Let’s get together!
