Barcamp is part unconference and part idea orgy. You show up and magic happens. True story. Since an unconference means the attendees that show up become the presenters, you never know what's going to happen until the day gets started. You don't have to present to be here you just have to be ready to get the rush of being around people that make awesome ideas more awesome through passionate discussion.
What else is Barcamp?
Barcamp is your chance to share what you're working on with other local creatives, entrepreneurs, techies, artists, scooter jockies, you name it. At your disposal, you will find a projector, a room, an audience, and 30 minutes to do your thing.
Some ideas to ponder: You don't have to be an expert to host a discussion at Barcamp: the only requirement is passion. Topics like education, startup communities, arts and entertainment, collaboration, sustainability, making awesomeness, and everything in-between have been talked about at Barcamps around the globe and need to be discussed more often here in the Corridor. These and many other ideas will continue to make our community amazing.
Crazy ideas are welcomed and encouraged. You could perform an interpretive dance, teach a origami and explain it's practical uses, challenge the audience to come up with the best recipe for meatloaf, or give a presentation on anything you love and want to share. Seriously, your imagination is the only limitation. This is the place you let it all hang out because what we love most is people sharing their passion.
Even if the urge to present doesn't strike you, come see what your neighbors are passionate about. This is a place to see and be heard.
You create here and we want to know what gets you revved up and rolling here in the Creative Corridor.
How it works:
BarcampICR #3 will have access to 3 rooms running simultaneously but we plan to use 2 depending on total turnout. Each room will have 3 20 minute sessions throughout the morning. When you show up you will see a grid/matrix on the wall showing you the schedule of the day. Our job is to fill in the open slots with presenters or discussion leaders.
Registration is at 9 and you are welcome to show up as early as 8:30 to put your name and idea up on the grid. Often what happens early in a Barcamp is magical: people start talking about their ideas and others chime in and the ideas become more awesome. Consider combining ideas if it makes sense or sign up for back to back sessions if the ideas build on each other. Once the grid is full, the host will finalize the schedule.
