Cre8Camp Concept Launched, Portland Version Set for July 26

One of the goals of the group of people working on the new Creative Conference (Cre8Con) is to help facilitate a creative community.  Cre8Con is one way to do that but there are others as well.  As part of that larger vision we have developed an unconference concept called Cre8Camp that takes the technology-centric BarCamp concept and adapts it for creative professionals.

Part of the concept is that the series of Cre8Camp unconferences (which can be self-organized in other cities just like BarCamp has been) will be affiliated with an annual “mothership” event—Cre8Con, the Creative Conference in Portland.   I don’t think this combination of a series of unconferences affiliated with a single traditional conference has never been done before.

The inaugural event, Cre8Camp Portland, will take place dowtown at souk on Saturday, July 26th from 10:00am – 3:00pm.  Pre-registration is required but there is no charge to attend.  This will provide a perfect ramp up to the Creative Conference happening on Sept. 6th, the day after Inverge: the interactive convergence conference on Sept. 4+5.

Cre8Con & Cre8Camp Portland are related non-profit projects fiscally sponsored by Keeping the Beat, a 501(c)3 public charity that supports arts education in Oregon.
