BARCAMP!

Have you ever been to one of those conferences where the speakers are announced months in advance, the schedule is set weeks in advance, you buy an expensive ticket (early because the tickets gets even more expensive as the deadline approaches) and the day finally comes, and head there ahead of time to get registered, get your badge and kit, etc… blah blah blah, decide what sessions you want to attend, plan your day(s) etc etc etc..

Session 1 : Blah Blah Intros
Session 2 – 9 : [pick a choice]
a. Wow, i just learned something great \
b. Interesting…
c. I wish i attended the other panel
d. *Fall asleep half way through*
e. Spam twitter/chat/bbm with how horrible the session is
in all cases, you wish the moderator has taken your question after having your hand up for 1/2 an hour…
Session 10 : Grand Finale Let’s go home!

NO! that’s exactly what BarCamp isn’t! [What is a BarCamp? Wikipedia]
Log on to our online page, sign up, and let us know what YOU want to talk about,
arrive on the day (July 30th, at AltCity, Hamra), plan the day with everyone else that has signed up, and let the day roll. Not only do YOU decide what the panels are, the sessions are about YOUr needs. Learn and contribute, that’s what it’s all about; just like you may have a problem dealing with your blogs analytics, others maybe having a problem with front end production, which could be your field of expertise that you could help them with…
think of it as a knowledge swap!

The AltMedia Experience | July 25-30, 2011

The AltMedia Experience will bring together a variety of community and corporate partners, media creators, innovators and activists around the themes of alternative media, new media, citizen journalism, and advocacy. The week-long event, at the end of July, will include a wide variety of activities, including media-focused art exhibits, demonstrations, workshops, and discussions, as well as fun and participatory cultural events in the evenings. This event is the first public (pre-launch) event at the new AltCity media/tech/social impact collaboration space that will be launching in Hamra this fall, and we’re excited to bring people into this space while it is still very much “in development” in order to engage the broader community in the design of both the physical space and the services/activities that will take place there.

The organization of The AltMedia Experience revolves heavily on openness and collaboration. Beyond providing logistical support and a venue, AltCity aims to bring together relevant organizations, companies, and individuals to organize and run different parts of the exhibition and events. We are also looking for corporate sponsors to help make this event possible. This will truly be a “crowd-sourced” event… join us!

Are you interested in playing a lead or contributing role in this exciting event?  Have ideas of something cool, interesting, or engaging that you would like to do there? Contact us ASAP at  altmedia@altcity.me
