Un:Conference Canberra 2016

[formerly BarCampCanberra]

A Canberra-born unconference: a con about open culture enabled by technologies new and old, whose schedule and sessions are filled, on the day, by its participants.

  Saturday, 9 April 2016

Welcome to the un:Conference Canberra, brought to you by some of the previous BarCampCanberra unorganisers, as well as fresh blood entirely.


Formerly ‘BarCampCanberra’, 2016 sees the return of a open-web, barcamp-web-themed, participatory (un)conference. (‘BarCamp’? ‘unconference’? … huh?)

The unorganisers met early this year and after some initial chats, it was decided to mix things up for 2016: we’re dropping the ‘BarCamp’ name.

The name change is primarily concerned with avoiding confusion, and so thematically not much has changed. The ‘unconference’ origins of the con aren’t going anywhere — in fact we renamed the conference to emphasise the participatory style barcamps are so well known for.
