Barcamp Kumasi

A Barcamp is basically an event where people meet and share ideas and learn from each other in an open environment. BarCamp Kumasi will bring together residents and lovers of Kumasi for a day of dialogue, demos and discussion about development in Kumasi. It is a free event as we want to attract as many people who are invested in the well-being and development of Kumasi. The event will be held on the KNUST campus on Saturday, September 18, 2010.
BarCamp Kumasi 2010, ad-hoc gathering where attendees meet for discussions, demos and networking, will take place on September 18, 2010 at the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST) Engineering Department at the KNUST campus in Kumasi, Ghana. The theme is be “Collaboration: The key for opportunity and development”. Following the successes of BarCamp Ghana '08 and BarCamp Ghana '09, regional BarCamp events will be organized in selected regions in Ghana to enable as many people as possible partake in BarCamps before the main national event in December.
On December 22, 2008, over a hundred young Ghanaians met in Accra for BarCamp Ghana '08 to exchange ideas on entrepreneurship, innovation and development for a rising Ghana. BarCamp Ghana '09 followed on December 21, 2009, in Accra, under the theme "Leadership for our times - cultivating change makers". BarCamp Kumasi 2010 will bring together stakeholders in Kumasi to for a day of dialogue, demos and discussions about how collaboration amongst different institutions can spearhead socio-economic development in Kumasi and beyond.
