What is WhereCamp?
WhereCamp is a free 'unconference' for geogeographers, mobile location experts and social cartographers and all kinds of folks interested in place. The first WhereCampAfrica was held at the ILRI campus in Nairobi in 2009. WhereKampala was held in conjunction with the 2009 AfricaGIS conference. The 3rd WhereCampAfrica was held at the iHub & NaiLab in Nairobi, June 2010. We are putting a plan in place for an expanded set of WhereCamps in 2013.
An unconference is a conference planned by the participants. After a morning plenary to help frame the discussion we all convene together, plan sessions, and have break-outs into sessions. Part of what is important to hearing new voices and getting new ideas is lowering barriers to participation - this event is free and it is driven by the participants.
