To our Bread&Net community, we will finally meet again from 23-26 November!

We invite you to register for Bread&Net 2021, our yearly unconference on digital rights in its fourth edition, taking place from the 23th to the 26th of November.
The event will cover a wide range of topics around policy advocacy in the Arabic-speaking countries, digital tools for a safer, more accessible internet, and regional community efforts that counter digital rights violations by repressive governments and international corporations acting with impunity in our region.

We’ve received some exciting proposals for Bread&Net 2021, and we can’t wait to share the program with you! Stay tuned.

Take a look at this year’s themes here.

Event Platform
For the 2021 edition of Bread&Net, we have opted to host our online sessions on Venueless. This new open source platform combines familiar tools with some newly-developed ones into a single user interface. The aim here is simplicity, both for speakers and attendees.

Code of Conduct 
Bread&Net is intended to be a welcoming, respectful, and collaborative space for our friends and community in the Arabic-speaking region. To maintain this open and safe environment for everyone, our participants, including staff, speakers and attendees, across all physical and virtual platforms, are required to adhere to the high standards of behaviour of  Bread&Net’s Code of Conduct.
