Activists sharing democratic convictions and a drive for change have been shaping the INSPIRED BY @MediaBarCamp since 2008. Once Inspired By someone, activists are now inspiring others to take action, and giving them the tools and knowledge to inspire.
INSPIRED BY @MediaBarCamp is a melting pot for activists from Belarus and their peers from Russia and other Eastern Partnership Countries. We share ideas, networks and encourage each other. Participants bring their experiences with them as they return home and use their inspiration to activate their communities. After INSPIRED BY @MediaBarCamp participants are invited to join follow up programmes and contribute to the series of events in Belarus, realizing activities in their regions.
The BarCamp format ensures a dynamic profile that is never the same. This un-conference is highly interactive and organized by hundreds of participants on-site. INSPIRED BY @MediaBarCamp creates an international sustainable platform for dialogue, platform for democracy activists from different spheres to engage in experience sharing and collaborative activities. Activists present their local projects and experiences, pooling democratic knowledge in a wide variety of innovative workshops, panel discussions and forums.
We want to hear about your vision, and what drives you to take action. How does your project fit in to a larger plan to improve your community, and what changes has it brought already? INSPIRED BY @MediaBarCamp offers a space to build real, meaningful and sustainable relationships that can grow through shared values and common interests. Together we contribute to increasing empathy, breaking stereotypes and shaping a common language in local communities. Our vision is to see networks of critical communities emerge from this programme and support the impact of their ongoing efforts.
INSPIRED BY @MediaBarCamp reminds us that we are not alone, and that democracy-driven activists from different countries and regions have access to a support network and a knowledge base that will help us succeed.
