Event Details

In honour of Yuri’sNight , a global celebration of humanity’s past, present, and future in space, we’ll be hosting SpaceCamp (#spacecampto). Yuri’s Night events are held around the world every April in commemoration of April 12, 1961, the day of cosmonaut Yuri Gagarin’s first manned spaceflight, and April 12, 1981, the inaugural launch of NASA’s Space Shuttle.

SpaceCamp (#spacecampto) will be an intense but informal gathering of space enthusiasts at heart from many disciplines: artists, astronomers, hackers, planetary scientists, engineers, sustainability focused architects & designers, web developers, and many others.

SpaceCamp is an unconference, where participants decide the topics, schedule, and structure of the event. Everyone who attends SpaceCamp is encouraged to give a talk, moderate a panel, run a demo, or start a discussion. Sessions are proposed and scheduled on the day they’re given, which means the usual “hallway conversations” turn into full-fledged topics.

This event aims to bring together people who would not normally have conversations with each other, and create a space for surprising, serendipitous connections. And what better place to generate creative ideas than our venue site, the Centre for Social Innovation!

 

Schedule for Saturday April 14:

10:00am - 10:30am speed networking - get to know everyone over coffee & croissants [don't miss this part!]

10:30am - 11:30am YOU plan the day's events for sessions from 11:30am - 6:00pm (anyone can propose a talk / lead a discussion / give a demo / brainstorm new ideas on any space-related topic)

11:30am - 12:30pm first sessions

12:30pm - 1:30pm lunch (provided)

1:30pm - 3:30pm further sessions (one hour each)

4:00pm - 6:00pm further sessions (one hour each)
