The mission of Refest is to bring artists, activists, and technologists together to explore our role in re-shaping the future. We partner with organizations that focus on creative technology, social justice, and arts and culture to make new connections that expand our understanding of the world around us. Presented in an open and interactive format, Refest is a space where new ideas intersect.
