BREAD AND NET 2019
15 November 2019 - 17 November 2019
Bread&Net, organised by SMEX, is the first Arabic-language gathering of its kind where activists, technologists, lawyers, artists, trainers, journalists, researchers, entrepreneurs, and others from across the region will come together to strengthen collective efforts to advance human rights in digitally networked spaces.
The first iteration of Bread&Net reactivated and renewed an existing, latent network of multidisciplinary stakeholders by offering an open, safe physical space, unavailable in many other MENA region countries, for participants to discuss a range of topics including the steady increase in regional cybercrime legislation, and content moderation; and to showcase privacy-oriented board games, open mapping tools, and feminist wikis to build the capacity of attendees.
Bread&Net 2019 will take place in Beirut, Lebanon, from November 15th to 17th. More information about the event can be found here.
