Global JamCamp and Global JamJam 2017
Mon, 4 Sep 2017, 16:00 – Sun, 10 Sep 2017, 19:00 BST
The Global Service Jams, Global Sustainability Jams and Global GovJams are amazing and incredible events. Thousands of people in hundreds of cities and dozens of countries on six continents Jam together and have a good time doing great things.
Now its time to bring the global community together again. A collaboration between the Global HQ team and some of the UK Jams invite you to Jam the Jam, hang out and have fun.
A message from the Birmingham Jam community:
"From our experience hosting the Global Jams in Birmingham the past 3 years, we truly believe that the Jams have the power to change the world, but no single Jam or idea that comes from it will be the cause for that change.
We also have to face the reality that many of the cities we live in, organise jams in – and care about – are facing real complex localised challenges. We believe that it is possible to leverage the Jam communities to affect positive change on a local level, and though this change affect the bigger social challenges affecting us all over the world.
It is because of this that we want to bring the community together to Jam the Jam, sharing and building upon learnings and practice from everywhere and giving everyone the opportunity to connect and collaborate."
WHEN AND WHERE?
The Global JamCamp and JamJam will be hosted in Birmingham UK between the 4th and the 10th September.
Global JamCamp: 4 to 7 September 2017
Global JamJam: 8 to 10 September 2017
Most activity will be centred on Impact Hub Birmingham, right in the heart of the UK's second city .
58 Oxford Street, Digbeth,
Birmingham, B5 5NR
We have not arranged specific accomodation.
There is accommodation for all budgets in the city, from 5 star luxury to backpack hostels and everything in between (even AirBnBs). If you have questions about the best areas, please get in touch. We think it's best to stay close to the Hub - it's to move around easier and hang out.
Our recommendation is the Rever Inn. It is average price and very close to the Jam location. We are working on a discount. If you are interested, let us know fast so that we can arrange something.
4-7 September 2017 : Global JamCamp "talking and doing"
(Starting late afternoon on the Monday.)
At JamCamp, experienced* Jammers and Hosts will have time to reflect, share, and be together as a community. No fixed agenda, no deadlines. Talking and doing :)
Our plan is to openly co-create activites with you. We want to bring us all together as a community of creative people doing interesting things all over the city. Let us know if there is something you want to share - then we can build into the programme.
8-10 September 2017 : Global JamJam "Jamming the Jam"
(Starting in the morning of the Friday, ending early evening Sunday)
At the JamJam, we invite experienced* Jammers and Hosts to create the tools and processes which will push the Jam idea and community forward. We will have a brilliant time. Just like any other jams it will be doing, not talking. It will ROCK.
The JamJam will be led by a collaboration of UK Jams and the GlobalHQ team - but we will be asking for your help to shape the event. We're Jamming after all!
