BarCamp Accra 2012 is a free networking event to bring people together for a day of discussion, demos and dialogue about Accra, Ghana and beyond. It hopes to assemble Accra stakeholders to network, build a supportive enterprising community and partner to build together.
The event shall be held at the Methodist University College Campus on December 22. The theme is â€œRemoving fear of failure as a start of successâ€.
GhanaThink Foundation, an NGO based both in Ghana and the USA, has successfully organized 18 BarCamps in Ghana since the end of 2008. Barcamp Accra 2012 will be organized in conjunction with the Methodist University College, Ghana (MUCG) and the Google Developer Group (GDG).
Barcamps have happened in Takoradi, Kumasi, Sunyani, Tamale, Cape Coast, Ho, and Tema in 2012. The Accra event will take a national stature with a large number of attendees also expected to be Ghanaians who live abroad.
As part of building a movement of Ghanaian young change-makers, doers and entrepreneurs, we’d be demystifying failure and discussing how we can learn from failure. It’s been affectionately called a “failcamp“.
We would have sessions with selected resource personnel who will be sharing and leading discussions on failure, removing the fear of failure and how we can fail our way to success. We shall also have the popular speed mentoring sessions with various young Ghanaian achievers. These would be short, exciting one-on-one sessions to help people gain insights into goals and projects.
