Coop Camp is a trans-disciplinary weekend of events that aims to connect the non-formal (and cultural) practices of cooperation in Pirkkanmaa and wider Finland, with the more formal organisational and academic cooperative research, including the network cultural scenes of Pispala Kulttuuriyhdistys and Pixelache Helsinki. For those who join this ‘tietotalkoot’, it will a co-operative camp that will gather not only Finnish perspectives, but those of a more international nature. The weekend consists of formal and informal presentations in Tampere centre on Friday evening, and Pispala neighbourhood on the Saturday-Sunday. The Saturday Coop Camp event will take an open organisational style: Instead of pre-selecting all presentations, we encourage certain people to come, as well as make open call for those to turn up on day to share their ideas, perspectives, processes of cooperation, according to the Unconference/BarCamp model. Not limited to just speaking presentations, participants can propose any type of activity that relates or suits cooperation or cooperative action, for example, cooking, construction, game-play, movement or physical actions, problem-solving, and so on. Tampere is the home of the first Finnish co-operative. Even today the city is home to successful ways of working collaboratively. Whether it is the use of cloud services in the high tech industry, or in the leisure sector such as with CouchSurfing, Tampere leads. Join in Facebook event/Liity Facebookissa tapahtumat!
