Barcamp Ho 13 is a free networking forum bringing people together for a day of discussion, demos and dialogue on Ho, Ghana and beyond. It will take place on October 26, 2013 at the SRC Auditorium of Ho Polytechnic. The theme for this year is "Transforming our Communities: New Attractions, New Culture, New Champions". This Barcamp hopes to assemble stakeholders to network, build a supportive enterprising community and partner to build together.
Barcamp Ho 2013 follows 24 successful BarCamps in Ghana organized by the GhanaThink Foundation as part of its Barcamp Ghana project. It will be a showcase of how Ghana’s youth are taking charge of its development and how they can be spurred on to do more. Using new champions of development in the Volta Region, with a new culture of doing and creating change, the Barcamp would focus on new attractions to drive the Volta Region forward.
The Barcamp will feature multiple user-generated breakout sessions about business, social entrepreneurship, technology and development, alongside topics relevant to the Northern Region and beyond. There will be a speed mentoringsession where mentors will give insights and answers to questions from attendees. The resource personnel would include Makafui Dzakpasu, Isaac Meyir, King David Suitor, Dzidudu, Sandra Arthur, Asiwome Dzineku, and Michael Dabi. Various Ho leaders will be on a panel that will center on the theme.
