The Unconference for Public Media and Community Engagement

PubCamp LogoNPR, PBS and CSM in conjunction with iStrategyLabs are once again hosting a National Public Media Camp (PubCamp), November 20-21, 2010 at American University, with the goal of gathering public media professionals and enthusiasts to strengthen public media in communities.

Join the Center for PubCamp '10, hosted on campus at American University in the Mary Graydon Center. We are seeking community technology activists, citizen journalists, public media consumers, students, public broadcasters and members of the public who are passionate about public media and interested in collaborative community initiatives. There is no cost to attend but you must register.

We are hoping to capitalize on the fantastic momentum of PubCamp '09, which inspired a number of local stations to initiate collaborative and often digital projects with their communities.

Modeled on unconferences such as BarCamp, PubCamp encourages participants to contribute confenerence tracks and sessions as part of the pre-conference engagement process. Join the PubCamp Wiki to submit your ideas. Significant portions of the event will also left open to allow space for the creative energy in the room to generate sessions on the spot.

Check out the PubCamp Wiki for more information including the schedule, hotel, directions, networking, sponsorship opportunities and sessions in development.
