Event Details

BarCamp Tamale 2012 is a free networking event bringing people together for a day of discussion, demonstrations and dialogue about Tamale, Northern Ghana and beyond. This follows last year's November 26 event at the Tamale Polytechnic in Tamale, Ghana. This year's edition will be held on July 14 at the Tamale Poytechnic. The theme is “Accelerating Development: Key Stakeholders & Priorities for Sustainable Change”. It will build upon local knowledge, expertise and resources in a supportive community for entrepreneurs, change makers, innovators and other leaders in Tamale and the Northern Region.

The GhanaThink Foundation has successfully organized 14 BarCamps in Ghana, resulting in a network of Ghanaian doers, entrepreneurs and change makers. Barcamp Tamale 2012 will be organized in conjunction with AfriLead International. This Barcamp will focus on creating more awareness about the uses of technology; build knowledge on how to foster innovation in and around Tamale; and increase visibility through tourism, (re)branding and online content creation.

BarCamp Tamale 2012 will feature multiple sessions on Northern Ghana’s development agenda and the recently launched Savannah Accelerated Development Authority, businesses, social entrepreneurship, technology tools and products, as well as breakout sessions on topics relevant to the Northern region and beyond. Like all Barcamps, there will be user-generated sessions and discussions where attendees get to set the agenda and topics for the day. 

Local experts will share knowledge on different technologies, and successful entrepreneurs and innovators will share their stories to serve as role models for participants. This year’s speakers include Dr. Mohammed-Sani Abdulai - Director of Research, Innovation and Development at the Kofi Annan Center for ICT; Mr. Saaka Abdulai - A professional teacher and entrepreneur based in Tamale; and Abdul-Nasser Alidu - Head of Product Innovation, Tigo.
