Pre-MozFest Event with News Labs & OpenNews

Join us the Thursday before MozFest for unconference talks, demos and chat

Remember, remember, the fifth of November!

While we won’t be lighting anything on fire†, BBC News Labs is hosting a short un-conference style event the day before MozFest officially starts and Bonfire Night begins. The first of hopefully many collaborations between News Labs and Knight-Mozilla OpenNews is happening in London next Thursday afternoon. We’ll be chatting about all things related to the convergence of news + tech + design.

Join us! Show off your recent work, give a quick talk on the most interesting subject of your choice, or hang out and make new contacts.

When: 5 November 2015 at 2-4:30pm
Where: TBC (stay tuned!)
What: meet newest and past OpenNews fellows and other hacks/hackers in town for MozFest
Why: a chance to demo / briefly talk / collaborate with like-minded industry professionals and fellows from around the world in a quieter, smaller context

Want to attend? Fantastic! Please let Jacqui Maher know ahead of time so she can add you to the list: Twitter DM @jacqui or email her (jacqui.maher) at (

We’re all looking forward to seeing you there - and can promise a couple pints of real ale at the local pub afterwards.

† Seriously, please don’t get us in trouble.
