Barcamp Tamale 2013 is a free networking forum bringing people together for a day of discussion, demos and dialogue on Tamale, Ghana and beyond. It will take place on August 17, 2013 at Tamale Polytechnic. The theme for this year is yet to be determined. This Barcamp hopes to assemble stakeholders to network, build a supportive enterprising community and partner to build together.
The GhanaThink Foundation has successfully organized 20 BarCamps in Ghana. BarCamp Tamale 2013 will be a showcase of how Ghana’s youth are taking charge of its development and how they can be spurred on to do more. There will be a focus on channeling the present energies around entertainment into positive developments and progress for Tamale and surrounding areas as well.
The Barcamp will feature multiple user-generated breakout sessions about business, social entrepreneurship, technology and development, alongside topics relevant to the Northern Region and beyond. There will be a speed mentoring session where mentors will give insights and answers to questions from attendees. Various Tamale leaders will be on a panel that will center on the theme.
