The event’s organization nowadays means a lot of uncertainty 🙂 However, it does not discourage us from trying to find various forms of meeting within the framework of the applicable regulations. We take action, even if a few days before the event, it turns out it gets more complicated. The festival will be fully hybrid and flexible.
We will also create event formats that do not require mass participation.
We treat our next festival as a great, creative challenge because we know how much we all miss festivals and meetings.
We are going to meet in Żyrardów, a surprising city, established at the beginning of the 19th century as a place to live for workers of a linen factory. It makes the city's architecture very unique and different from most of the towns in Poland. Moreover, the first women's strike in Poland took place in Żyrardów.
Meetings during the festival will take place, among others, in the Len Cinema, the Linen Factory, the Resursa and the Park. Besides, we also want to make the most of the city's various spaces and give it a unique character during the festival.

Coronavirus is changing the world – shuts down, slows down, makes us lonely… However, some people and organisations are fighting its effects.
They are common people who are launching crowdfunding for informal workers; they are entrepreneurs creating new Apps; they are mayors who prepare the city for opening with new cycling and pedestrian areas.
There is a lot of innovation happening both in media and in storytelling right now. 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 how we can connect better.
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.
We couldn’t have envisioned a better theme for out summit than the one that pays tribute to stories.
