Less than three weeks to go to one of the world's first Bar Camps devoted solely to comics. Bar Camp is FREE FOR EVERYONE given that it runs on corporate sponsorship. Or should do, but y'know, this is comics. Blick Studios are our first sponsor, providing a reduced venue rent, full use of tech and presentation equipment and tea and coffee on tap.
Sales outlets and distribution - Patrick Brown
Establishing a regular local market in Dublin - Gar Shanley
Motivation - Gareth McKnight
Drawing from Comics Scripts - Stephen Downey
Writer Pitching & Bar Camp OR Digital Distribution- Andy Luke
Web Publishing - Gareth Watson
We're also hoping to see sessions on managing self-employment, institutionalised funding and design and marketing, organised by local entrepreneurs and council support from outside comics.
None of these presentations or discussions are time-fixed. On the morning of the event, the presenters place the titles on post-its on an open grid. Nor is any one person running Bar Camp. It is a group effort from everyone who is attending.
The website is a wiki. were you can read and add details, register, find the Google groups, the ICN forums, the tweeters or whatever way you want to plug into the discussion AND organisation. That's right. Bar Camp is COMMUNALLY run and EVERYONE is considered a guest.
