CityCamp Brighton!

Friday 22nd – Sunday 24th March 2013

We’ve been going to CityCamp for the last three years, seeing some great talks but more importantly linking-up with some inspiring people working to make a difference in the city.

Our DataBridge project with Jo Ivens (@jo_ivens) helped voluntary sector organisations across the city use open data to improve services, and was the outcome of an intensive weekend of development sessions at CityCamp 2011.

If you’ve already booked your tickets, we look forward to seeing you there. If you haven’t, there is still time! Head over to the CityCamp Eventbrite page now and get your free tickets for Friday, Saturday, Sunday or all three.

If you’re still not sure, here are three reasons to sign up:

1. Great speakers

The speaker line-up for the Friday is looking fantastic. Among others:

  • You’ll here the city’s director of public health talking about the big health challenges in the city, and the leader of the council letting us know what he worries about
  • You’ll hear the inspiring Tom Nixon, co-founder of Brightoneers and NixonMcinnes, talking about how you can make change happen
  • You’ll hear stores of social innovation from Emma Daniel (BH Coats for Kids) and Paul Richards (last year’s winner) talking about how Gig Buddies has gone from an idea at CityCamp to a project with funding and staff

2. Great People 

CityCamp is about working on ideas with new people. Last year, 80% of participants said that they had worked with someone from a different sector (public-private-citizen) for all or most of the weekend. We’ve already got a wide range of people from council, NHS, community groups and businesses signed up- join them and learn from their experience.

3. Great ideas

Most of all, we’ve got people bringing ideas- and we know you’ve got some too. If there’s something you’re working on that needs fresh thinking. If you have a problem you can’t crack that needs solving. If you want to get something started but don’t know how. Come to CityCamp and find friends, enthusiastic people to give you the benefit of their experience and skills.
