Civic BarCamp 2020, Haghpat


23-25 OCTOBER 2020

NESEHNUTÍ with CENTRE FOR COMMUNITY MOBILIZATION AND SUPPORT invites you to Civic BarCamp in Haghpat, Lori, Armenia.

In the light of the COVID-19 outbreak we have to postpone planned Civic BarCamp from July to October and partly quit international attendance. We hope the situation in Armenia will improve soon and we will meet in Haghpat.

The Barcamp 2020 will be held 23-25 October 2020 in Haghpat near Alaverdi city in the north of Armenia. (106 km from Tbilisi, Georgia and 164 km from Yerevan, Armenia.)



What does it mean to be civically engaged?

And how to do that?

Let's share our experience with civic campaigns! 

Let's discuss the topics that are currently important for our communities.

Meet! Share! Act!

A BarCamp is a platform where everyone can share ideas about civic engagement.

Come and meet those who stood behind important social changes and become one of them.  

The Barcamp starts on Friday and lasts until Sunday. These three days will be full of experiences - sharing and thinking about how to perform civic campaigns, how to protect human rights and environment, how to start media and much more.

You can choose the lectures and workshops based on your interest, or submit for an open mic and speak up, or ask the others for the advice! 

Each lecturer will appear twice during the weekend so you should be able to attend all the parts of the program important for you.

The BarCamp will take place in Haghpat near Alaverdi from 23 to 25 July 2020.

Anybody Armenia who is active in civil society is invited to apply for participation.

Attendants and lecturers from other places are invited individually by the organizing team due to limited capacity and air travel costs.

For registration, please submit your application form no later than 26 July 2020. We will inform you about your participation after 10 August 2020. 

We invite some of those who stood behind successful campaigns in Armenia, Georgia and Czechia to come and share with us their knowledge, experience and energy.

A BarCamp, however, is a special form of a non-conference focused on sharing competencies through informal education, where the division between a trainer and a participant fades away. 

So everyone is invited to be the driving force of the mutual process of learning.
