Note: ArtScienceCamp begins on Friday the 12th (7pm to 10pm) and continues on Saturday the 13th (10am to 6pm, followed by dinner).
ArtScienceCamp is an intense but informal gathering of artists, scientists, engineers, architects, designers, and many others.
On Friday evening, we will collectively decide on the program for Saturday. Everyone is strongly encouraged to bring a crazy idea, a work in progress, or a vital topic for discussion, and to organize a session around it. Sessions can be talks, panel discussions, demos, or brainstorming; the best sessions are the most interactive ones.
Saturday will run according to the program that was agreed to on Friday. There will be multiple break-out spaces for smaller discussions, as well as plenty room for serendipitous connecitons and conversations. There will also be space for people to display recent projects and artworks, or works in progress.
ArtScienceCamp is based on "unconference" model that is taking off around the world, with events like SciBarCamp, DemoCamp, and many more. Successful Camp events bring together people that would not normally have conversations with each other, and create a space for surprising, serendipitous connections.
Take a look at what people had to say about recent SciBarCamps (the event that ArtScienceCamp is being modeled on):
