Discover the MozFest Book, a celebration of our past and future.

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.

9,500+ participants

Artists, activists, technologists, designers, students, and journalists with a single mission: a better, healthier internet

580+ sessions

Immersive sessions that teach privacy best practices, develop solutions to online misinformation and harassment, build open-source tools, support Trustworthy AI innovations, and more

145 countries

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.
