Sunday 30th March 2008 Critical Practice convened a ResourceCamp to tackle the 'elephant in the room' of open organizations, and those in receipt of public funds - the management of money and more generally the distribution of resources. As an 'outcome' we would like to draft some guidelines for 'open' budget management.
Some of the presentations feature in the table below. See also ResourceCamp Notes.
BarCamps are an international network of user generated unconferences — open, participatory workshop-events, whose content is provided by participants — often focusing on early-stage developing projects, and related to open source methods, social protocols, and open data formats.
Structure and participatory process
Anyone can initiate a BarCamp, using the BarCamp wiki for guidance.
The procedural framework consists of sessions proposed and scheduled each day by attendees, mostly on-site, typically using white boards or paper taped to the wall.
All attendees are encouraged to present - we think about 20 mins with time for questions, observation and exchange. Everyone is also asked to share information and experiences of the event, both live and after the fact, via public web channels including (but not limited to) blogging, photo sharing, social bookmarking, wiki-ing, and IRC.
Critical Practice will be paid a fee of £375 to participate in Disclosures. Since the invitation to participate is open, so is the budget.
How to claim: State your need in the form above and in an email to our mailing list. If you need the funds up front it may be possible for Critical Practice to pay for travel directly.
There is a proposal for the documentors of the day, Jem and Micaela to share the remaining funds?
