Join us for a virtual MozFest, starting March 8th 2021
MozFest is a unique hybrid: part art, tech and society convening, part maker festival, and the premiere gathering for activists in diverse global movements fighting for a more humane digital world.
Artists, activists, technologists, advocates, students, and journalists with a single mission: a better, healthier internet
Immersive sessions that teach privacy best practices, develop solutions to online misinformation and harassment, build open-source tools, support Trustworthy AI innovations, and more
MozFest welcomes activists from Taipei, coders from Berlin, educators from Nairobi, researchers from Brasilia, and others from regions and movements around the world
12 days of programming
MozFest unfolds over the span of two weeks, with interactive sessions, films, talks, round-tables, hack-a-thons, exhibits, and socials.
Whether playfully or audaciously - it is only by imagining what does not yet exist: new pathways, new solutions, new possibilities - that we can break our silos and strengthen our commitment to operate interdependently. The joy of playfulness and invention that is at the core of MozFest is critical to fueling our movements.
J. Bob Alotta - VP, Global Programs - Mozilla
Over the last ten years, MozFest has fueled the movement to ensure the internet benefits humanity, rather than harms it. As the festival matures and moves online for this year, we’ll remain focused in our work to build a healthier internet and more Trustworthy AI.
