Bread & Net has quickly become one of the most loved and cherished community spaces in the digital rights community. It brings together hundreds of activists, technologists, journalists, researchers and others, to promote and defend digital rights across Arabic speaking countries in Southwest Asia and North Africa.

- Introduce Bread&Net 2021, including this edition's themes
