In 2018 I led the development and delivery of The Centre for Investigative Journalism’s 2018 Logan Symposium "Conspiracy". Since 2014 the event has been one of the world’s foremost gatherings of investigative journalists, whistleblowers, hackers and documentary film-makers. A unique and unholy alliance between veteran muckrakers, cypherpunks and activists that comes together every two years to challenge power, fight for democracy, and build an alliance against state sponsored secrecy, surveillance and censorship.
The 2018 event saw the convergence of a two day programme of talks, lectures and presentations with a new contemporary art exhibition, documentary film screenings, workshops and live investigations. The symposium featured Pulitzer Prize winning reporters, Turner Prize nominees, and everyone from The Intercept and The Goethe Institute to The Open Society Foundations, BBC, RT, Lulz Sec and Bellingcat.
The event is made possible through the generous support of The Reva & David Logan Foundation.
