What is the international Sketchnote Camp?
The International Sketchnote Camp is a yearly gathering of sketchnoters, graphic facilities and visual thinkers who gather together to share, get inspired and have fun in a barcamp format event with keynote speaches.
What's a BarCamp?
A Barcamp is where participants (meaning “you”) self-organize the agenda on the spot! Anyone who wants to deliver a talk, host a workshop or chair a discussion can put forward their idea. With the help of Post-It note and a whiteboard grid of sessions, we negotiate a schedule together.
Are there any other sessions?
Yes. There are also keynote sessions where we have invited guest speakers to share a prepared talk for the benefit of the everyone. We can't wait to share the details of our speakers but we need to confirm some details first.
The history of the International Sketchnote Camp
The first sketchnote camp was organised by the “Gang of Four” in Hamburg, Germany in 2017. They wanted to gather sketchnoters together in a bar camp style event that anyone could join. After the success of the event, the event travelled to Lisbon, Portugal for the 2018 event before moving to Paris for the 2019 event and then Brussels for the delayed 2020 event in 2021.
