MozFest is a diverse, highly interactive event with something for everyone. The festival kicks off Friday evening with a science fair, where attendees can stroll around and check out presentations on inspiring ideas and projects, many of which were developed at previous MozFests. Saturday and Sunday are filled with participant-led sessions that generally run between one and three hours. These might be interactive labs where participants can learn something new or share their knowledge; small group breakout discussions where bright minds debate the most pressing issues facing the Internet today; or design sprints dedicated to hands-on making, hacking and producing a ‘thing’.
Sessions are organized into spaces — physical and thematic learning hubs based around a broad topic, like science, art, or journalism.
Ongoing, interactive experiences weave between spaces, connecting thematic threads and allowing participants to explore topics in a self-directed way.
Some people choose to enjoy MozFest by completely immersing themselves in a single space, while others like to roam around the venue. Both options are equally welcome, and the festival features pathways — curated sets of related sessions that explore a subject area like open data, dealing with online harassment, or mobilizing communities — to guide you between spaces.
The festival wraps on Sunday evening with a demo party, where we showcase and celebrate what we built together.
