How Practicing Liberation Built Futurist Lenses at the Internet Freedom Festival

I see the Internet Freedom Festival as futurist space. The works we do across movement  are all ways that we are practicing living into a new future together.

The Internet Freedom Festival is the only organization focused entirely in community development for the Internet Freedom field. We design programs and tools to bring together the eclectic plethora of activist groups, NGOs, governmental agencies, media organizations, large internet platforms, and many others who rely on each other to achieve the common goal of a free and open internet for all.


Our flagship initiative is the Internet Freedom Festival un-conference, one of the leading gatherings in the space, that brought together close to 1,000 attendees from 132 countries in 2018. And, since we believe that diversity is a requisite for Internet Freedom, we have the largest Diversity and Inclusion Program in the field – 53% of our conference speakers were recipients of travel stipends –, and the conference’s sessions are picked by a geographically and professionally diverse fellows program.

The Internet Freedom Festival is, unlike any other conference focusing on the fight against censorship and surveillance due to its spotlight on diversity of ethnicity, region, gender, and thought that’s represented. The IFF is also probably one of the most inclusive and celebratory events in the space, raising up individuals and their various projects/disciplines.
