It’s here! MozFest 2019 has officially begun! Tonight, at this very moment, we’re opening the event with a very special anniversary edition of the Science Fair at MozHouse, at the Royal Society of the Arts.
Tomorrow, Saturday 26 October, get to Ravensbourne (6 Penrose Way, London SE10 0EW) bright and early. You’ll want to arrive by 8:30 am to grab a coffee, your copy of the MozFest book, and a good seat for our Opening Circle. We’ll be bringing the celebratory birthday vibes, so you won’t want to miss this kick-off! And of course expect an appearance from everybody’s favorite giant orange furry open internet mascot, Foxy.
Session blocks begin just after the Opening Circle, at 10 am, and run until 17:30. Take a break for lunch (served from 12:00–14:00) and conversation with your new best friends. Or head over to the Dialogues & Debates space on floor 0 for lively discussion and enlightening insights from some of the world’s thought leaders in the internet health movement. Don’t forget to caffeinate and hydrate, you’ll need energy to explore all 9 floors of the Festival and play a round of AI-themed oversized Jenga before heading off to our super special Saturday Night Party from 19:00–00:00 at The Fable, 52 Holborn Viaduct, Holborn, London EC1A 2FD.
Sunday 27 October, roll in to Raves between 9:00 and 10:45 for our Networking Breakfast, and share a coffee with yet more new friends. Then dive back in and check out still more sessions (full schedule is here)… New at this year’s festival is our Neurodiversity Space (co-curated by Wrangler Leena Haque)… Don’t let the weekend slip by without a visit to the special environment they’ve constructed on the 8th floor! Have lunch (served from 12:00–14:00) check out more amazing sessions, more speakers. Trade stickers, trade ideas, network, collaborate, maybe get involved in a mysterious game that may or may not be taking place on the 5th floor…. And before you know it, it will be time for our Closing Party, from 17:30 to 20:00 at Raves.
Wow, it’s going to be an amazing weekend!
