I’ve managed to get involved with helping to organise another barcamp. We have done barcamps, bizcamps and all that jazz, now its time for Artcamp. The main idea being to help bridge the divide between the artist and technology community. Both artists and technology community have a lot in common and even more learn from each other. Now seems like a great time to start creating,innovating and collaborating in new and exciting ways.
ArtCamp is a user generated unconference for creatives. Calling all creatives from visual arts, film, theatre, design, dance, literature, photography, media, IT, music and technology to a free conference/gathering in Dublin Spring 2010. ArtCamp is an opportunity for all creatives, artists, entrepreneurs and innovators to come together, share experiences, and possibly create new value from the day. It’ll be a chance to meet up with people who’ve been there, done that and bought the t-shirt – members of the creative community, business community and representatives from the relevant agencies. Come along to ArtCamp, who knows what new opportunities might present themselves?
People tend to associate *Camps with the Web and the technology start-ups, but our aim is to try and embrace as much of the Irish creative community as possible. We want to see people from all streams – artists, musicians, writers, dancers, actors, administrators, curators, arts workers and technology and media professionals, coders, designers, project managers, finance, operations, HR, legal, delivery specialists, R&D, marketing – and yes, even tech! Ireland Inc. has a wealth of creativity, knowledge and acumen, more than enough to help us out of these troubled times. By attending (and, more importantly, contributing!) you can help make ArtCamp the first “good news story” of 2010.
