HactionLab has run apparently for a few years, with two events, one in the summer in a farm, and one in the winter in a city. This year’s summer event, BarnCamp, is going to be over three full days: Friday 10th, Saturday 11th and Sunday 12th, at Highbury Farm again and it’s live on the web at
There’s a pretty hires flyer/poster for it that you can download at
For the Saturday and Sunday there will be workshops comprising of pre-organised ones and a load of open space / barn camp sessions that we decide during the event. If you’d like to
run a workshop, please add your proposals to the wiki page at:
We’ve added the Friday back this year, and this is for what we’re
calling ‘work sessions’. These are for people to bring larger projects along that they want to actually get down to some work on and so these sessions may take half a day or even a full day on the Friday, and some may choose to continue working on them for the rest of BarnCamp.
Please add your proposals to the page at:
The cost this year is going to be 35 quid. This is to cover the extra
day and includes all meals and up to four nights camping. We can give concessions of course, and there’ll be details of how to get in touch about this when we launch the registration.
Highbury Farm is also looking for willing volunteers to help prepare
meals for the Saturday and Sunday. Feeding people is probably the most important and appreciated aspect of BarnCamp. If this sounds up your street, there’ll be space on the registration for you to let us know about this. Or just drop an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
letting us know that you’re up for it.
We’re also looking for willing performers to entertain us on the Friday and/or Saturday night, and also techs. If this is you, sign up at:
Finally, as per last year, we hope to have a kids area, but once again, no pets are allowed as Highbury Farm is a working organic farm.
