Few last remarks before you proceed: Mediabarcamp with INSPIRED BY topic of year 2017 is a four day non-conference event – mostly created and INSPIRED BY participants themselves. Your engagement and wish to share your experience with others is what makes it unique. This year we offer to choose from several possible formats that would be most suitable for you to INSPIRE others and get INSPIRED. The INSPIRED BY @MediaBarCamp will keep a strong focus on regions and intersectional cooperation. Your motivation, desire to network and willingness to become or share experiences of change maker for your local community and country will pave your way to join MediaBarCamp community.
@MediaBarCamp is a space where activists from different spheres gather to share their experience (achievements, tools and approaches that helped them) implementing projects or initiatives. Here activists network and have an opportunity to work together. They INSPIRE one another to come back to local communities with some new ideas or even joint projects to make an impact and proceed with their activism. Participants are creating the most parts of 4 days event at various spaces and several venues by sharing their activism experience, various projects and points of views, sparkling discussions and other initiatives. We believe that everything starts from the person and organisations consisting of people, personalities and TRUE activists. Therefore, we aim to provide a space for personal individual experience sharing focusing more on personal experience learning. @MediaBarCamp is a space where individuals share their experience on activism despite their membership or relation to the organizations/projects/initiatives. We kindly ask activists to share their experience of project/initiative implementation with personal focus. In case there are couple of members of organization/project, we kindly ask to share experience in different ways, focus on different angles – give a personal touch to the experience sharing since each application will be assessed individually.
