CAMPFIRE Festival Dortmund 2017

Campfire Table

IndieWeb at “CAMPFIRE”, one of several IndieWebCamp events in 2017!
We want to leave the fustiness. Let's make experiencing the good aspects of journalism attractive and striking for everyone. Bands will play and DJ's will perform evening long.

We want to learn and celebrate with you.
We gather around a kind of big camp fire, where our stories come to life.

The CAMPFIRE Festival is not an expert conference, but a three-day festival for everyone who is curious: Join us on Friday and Saturday in a combined tent with CCC and Code for Germany !

The importance for journalists of digital authorship, ownership and syndication is getting more awareness. We want to host a special tent as a kind of “Open Space” with a particular emphasis on journalism with use cases for journalists, photographers, editors, related bloggers and platforms which are publishing their work. Learn how to use the building blocks (see also 2017) to empower media and encourage everybody to own their own content and identities.

Let's discuss how to share content and what is needed and what-not.

To foster the next generation of potential Indieweb adopters who may be focused on areas of news, journalism, or distribution, we want to compile some specific hints, tips, pointers, and examples which may be germane to these particular audiences to assist in their motivation and adoption. The tent is open and engaged all Friday and Saturday :

  • When: 11:00–19:00 and 10:00–19:00
  • Where: The Festivals Tent Village will be built on the Campus in Dortmund, Otto-Hahn-Strasse 12, Dortmund, Germany.

✈️ DTM [DUS and CGN nearby] Ⓜ️ S1, H1 station “Dortmund Universität” (🎓Campus) :
