BarCamps give everyone the chance to bring themes to the table, while discussing topics such as; creativity, business practices, perspectives, social themes, and the newest developments in our shared passion of improvisation. The procedure as well as the content is determined by the participants. As a result, there is usually a valuable exchange of experience and knowledge shared, often including open and participative events.
BarCamps are very common in German-speaking countries, whereby the concept originally comes from the USA. The BarCamp process is similar to the Open Space method, but the structure is more loosely organized. It consists of lectures and discussion sessions that are coordinated on whiteboards, meta-places or bulletin boards each day by the participants themselves. All participants are invited to propose a topic themselves and to actively contribute.
