Facilitators are ambassadors of the festival, leading sessions that explore various themes. They act as champions of the festival, bringing their work to the MozFest community to share, develop, and connect with others passionate about Internet Health and Trustworthy AI.
Becoming a Facilitator starts with a proposal – after thinking about an idea you want to explore at MozFest and submitting a session to our call-for-proposals (CFP). Once your idea gets the green light, you'll join forces with MozFest Wranglers and the MozFest Team, who’ll help you to craft an inclusive and impactful session to share at MozFest.

MozFest Facilitator Guide
MozFest emphasises three Facilitation Principles: Participation, Accessibility, and Inclusivity. Facilitating at MozFest is what makes the festival unique. Unlike a traditional conference, we highlight the platforming of voices and the participatory nature of sessions.
ADIDS is a structure for sessions that draws from contemplations on approaches to adult learning. ADIDS helps plan engaging and fulfilling sessions by introducing a topic through an enjoyable activity, engaging participants in discussion, providing space for participant input, and deepening participant knowledge on a topic.

The Making of MozFest
If you’ve been to MozFest before, you know it’s different from other conferences. If you haven’t… well, it’s hard to describe the whirl of people and ideas, those sparks of curiosity and connection, and the vibe — that buzzing, dynamic, positive energy. You can feel it spilling out of sessions into hallways and stairwells, fueling lunchtime conversations and late night karaoke adventures, propelling participants from session to session and floor to floor on a madcap journey of discovery and invention.
