Talks aren’t scheduled until just before the conference starts, and anyone can speak — though it’s just as rewarding to sit back and listen. There’s no bar (except for drinks at the opening party) and no camp (unless you bring your own tent). But there’s a whole lot to discover.
This year, we celebrate process. How do we get from A to B, and where do our creative worlds collide? BarCamp 2018 invites you to share your messy, extraordinary, perhaps unfinished creations — because we’re all a work in process.
Our speaker slots are divided into four tracks: Creative, Tech, Entrepreneur and Kitchen Sink.
New this year thanks to Emspace + Lovgren: apply for a BarCamp scholarship by July 14!
7pm | *NEW* BarCamp Coworking | Location TBD
Whether you have a last-minute talk idea, need advice on your slides or want to practice before the big day, join us for a casual coworking night where you can refine your BarCamp talk, featuring input from community mentors in public speaking and creative presentations.
7 PM | Opening Party | HiFi House
Get pumped for the opening party, brought to you by Adobe! Each BarCamp ticket purchase gets you one free drink ticket. This party and its cash bar is open to the public, so bring your friends — you can always purchase BarCamp tickets at the door. We’ll have photos, choice tunes, and great company.
8 PM | Adobe Workshop featuring Aaron Bernstein
Join us for a free interactive workshop hosted by Adobe creative resident Aaron Bernstein, an NYC-based photographer. We’ll use hands-on activities to explore alternative conceptual techniques, pushing the boundaries of context in artwork to redefine meaning and highlight the importance of intent with which the work was created.
9 PM | Prize Giveaways
All partygoers are entered for a chance to win prizes from our partners.
8:45 AM | BarCamp 2018 Kickoff
Our emcee duo, Flame Schoeder and William M. Riley, will lay some ground rules for the day. We’ve got a lot in store this year, so get there early!
9 AM | Morning Talks Begin
We’ll start the first round of talks promptly at 9am — get ready to learn and to share. Hosts from FireBelly Rep will be at each track to help speakers with audio/video needs and emotional support. And thanks to Tech Omaha, we’re able to film talks at every track.
12 PM | Lunch
Grab a sack lunch and catch up with old and new friends. We’ve got a special lunch activity in the works this year, where you’ll have the chance to impact the future of BarCamp. More details coming soon.
1 PM | *NEW* Special Round: Lightning Talks
Want to share, but don’t have enough content for a half hour? No worries! We’re hosting a special round of 7-minute lightning talks at each track.
1:30 PM | Half-Hour Talks Resume
Round out the last few hours of BarCamp and pop into a track you haven’t been to, or sign up for a talk of your own!
4 PM | Closing Ceremony
Say goodbye to another year of BarCamp. But stay tuned — we’re planning extended programming in 2019.
