Welcome to MozFest! Thank you for sharing your work with our community, and boldly and enthusiastically exploring the internet health movement. We ask our MozFest community and movement to connect, collaborate and build Trustworthy AI, in products, policies, guidelines, creative work, and so much more. We explore core issues such as bias, transparency and data stewardship through a multitude of mediums, and with the evolution of global perspectives to advance local issues.

If this is your first time at MozFest, it is important to remember that the festival is a unique hybrid event: 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.

MozFest takes many shapes and forms. From a global rolling virtual event to re-emerging as in-person hyperlocal iterations throughout the year. Formats for sessions vary and, when virtual, are hosted on platforms that suit the level of participation and engagement you want from the session. Our in-person events are fully immersive in our physical convening space as we engage with the happenings in each region.

This guide is your source of truth. Directing you to shared resources, support calls for facilitation essential designs, platform training, promotional materials for social and email, and what to expect from today till the Festival.

We wish you the best of luck in preparing to facilitate your MozFest session.

Welcome to our community.
