The Mozilla Festival, affectionately known as MozFest and hosted by the Mozilla Foundation, harnesses the collective power of unexpected partnerships --- from analog artists and public interest technologists to policymakers and neurodiverse activists --- to creatively disrupt the status quo and reframe and reimagine our online world. Mozfest welcomes your voice in this critical, community-driven experience.
The 2022 virtual event will open on 7 March 2022 for four days of online sessions. Mozfest is a perfect space for the Web Monetization community to share work, teach others and find collaborators. The Call for Proposals for the festival is open until November 5th. All details on submitting are here.
Over the last three years, the Web Monetization community and Grant for the Web have been heavy contributors to the festival. We highly encourage you to submit a session. In addition, the Interledger Foundations and our friends at Coil will be active participants.
