We’re very excited about this year’s Mozilla Festival (24-26 October, London). It really is true that you can arrive with an idea and leave with a community! You can get an flavour of some of what will be going on through the 11 tracks:
- Build and Teach the Web – Keep the web wild through hands-on making with innovative tools and teaching the web as a community.
- Open Web With Things – Escape the limitations of your computer and build the web using sensors, circuits and good old paper and scissors.
- Web in Your Pocket – Explore opportunities in the booming world of the open web on mobile. How can we experiment & tinker to customize our own experience on our phones?
- Source Code for Journalism – Design next-generation web solutions to solve critical issues facing news organizations and help journalism thrive on the open web.
- Open Science and the Web – Examine the potential of the open web to re-define how we experiment, analyze and share scientific knowledge.
- Art and Culture of the Web – An exploration of the programs, practices and inspirations of open and networked digital art forms.
- Open Badges Lab – Challenge the conventional system of recognizing skills and learning. Celebrate achievements from Open Badge creators and issuers.
- Hive Learning Networks – Join this lab for people working on building local city learning networks (Hives) and how they can better globally connect to share learning experiences for youth and digital media.
- Musicians and Music Creators on the Open Web – Play a role and explore what it takes to make music on the open web.
- Policy & Advocacy – Privacy, Security, and Building the Movement to protect the free and open web.
- Open Data – Uncover the data on the web and in our world that will help us better inform and organize our communities
If any of those sound like the kind of thing you’d like to run a practical, hands-on session about, we want to hear from you! For your proposal to be the best it can be, it’s worth bearing in mind that we’ll need to hear how you’re going to make your session inclusive, inspiring and inviting. We’ll need real examples as well as some detail on how you plan to structure your session.
