You are invited to contribute to PubliCamp, an afternoon event in Kennington Park, London that considers notions of ‘publicness’ through a barcamp structure comprised of short presentations and lively discussion.

Event Focus: Your presentation may consider the following questions or others related to ‘publicness’: What does it mean to be in public? How does ‘publicness’ compare/contrast/overlap with ‘privateness’? In what ways is ‘publicness’ culturally produced? What, for example, does it involve in different countries, communities and other contexts? How is ‘publicness’ performed through everyday acts like traveling, meeting, eating and so on in public space? What impact are online spaces like Facebook having on notions of ‘publicness’? What is the difference between ‘public space’ and the ‘public domain’?

Organization: The event will use a barcamp structure. BarCamps are an international network of user-generated unconferences — open, participatory workshop-events, whose content is provided by participants.

Contributions: Attendees may register their presentations on the day or in advance (visit the Critical Practice wiki). Presentations will be ‘themed’ into ‘sessions’ exploring similar concerns. White/flip boards at the event will announce the day’s order of presentation.

All attendees are encouraged to present and share their expertise. Presentations should be 10 to 15 minutes long and will be followed by general discussion.

Shared Archiving and Reflection: A scribe will minute key ideas. These will be available at the event and archived on the Critical Practice wiki. Participants are encouraged to share their own reflections through via blogging, photo sharing, social bookmarking, wiki-ing, twittering, etc.

Location: PubliCamp will be convened in Kennington Park – a former common, scene of a huge public Chartist gathering, enclosed (with Royal sponsorship), and now a ‘public’ park.

Facilitation: PubliCamp will be facilitated by Critical Practice, a cluster of artists, researchers, academics and others, based at Chelsea College of Art & Design, London. Through our Aims we intend to support critical practice within art, the field of culture and organization.
