What’s a WhereCamp?

WhereCamps connect geo-enthusiasts, developers, social place hackers, artists, activists, grad students, geographers, earth scientists and anybody else who wants to “know their place”.

Popular topics include social cartography, software and hardware, context awareness, mobile development, humanitarian mapping efforts, food webs and local food transparency, transit, psychogeography, geo games, paper maps, and place hacking.

WhereCamp is an unconference, which means it has little to no pre-selected content. Instead, the content is provided by the participants once they arrive. Everyone gathers in the morning to propose sessions and schedule them in blocks throughout the day. Sessions take many forms, from prepared talks to open discussions to running around outside with balloons. We value open participation, providing access to new voices, and lowering barriers to participation. The result is a fun event is driven by the interests and talents of the participants.

Keynote Speaker: Matthew Freid

Matthew Freid manages the Corporate GIS Program in the Bureau of Technology Services at the City of Portland. The CGIS Program provides a central repository of GIS data that is available to internal customers and external access through Portlandmaps.com. Matt will be speaking on the following topics:

Background on City of Portland Open Data efforts
What the city has been working on for the new version of Portland maps.
How the city uses API’s to access spatial and tabular data and how developers could use them as well
Plans for making more city data available as part of this effort
Work the city are doing on key datasets for the community including addresses and buildings.

How can I help?

WhereCampPDX is an all volunteer-run event. We’re just kicking off the bulk of the planning process now, and would love to have more folks scheming with us to make this the best WhereCampPDX ever. If you can lend a hand, please join our mailing list.

In order to keep WhereCampPDX free for everyone, we rely on the generous support of our sponsors. If your company is interested in supporting our efforts, please drop us a line.

Spread the word!

We’d love if it you could take a moment to tell other interested geonerds in your life about WhereCampPDX.

Some ideas:

Post to your blog!
Share your interest on Twitter, Facebook, or your favorite social network!

See you at WhereCamp!

Designers Taking Action
AIA Center for Architecture

Design has an extensive impact on how social movements are activated. Designers are engaging in campaigns and social issues at increasing levels, and non-designers are learning and implementing design practices for a more effective movement. Design is employed to shape activism, including everything from establishing a voice and brand, to empathizing with an audience and rapidly prototyping to maximize your impact.

Kicking off this monthly event will be speaker Natalie Sundeleaf Sept, who has found her passion at the intersection of activism, engagement, art, and design.

Natalie will discuss how designers, makers, and artists react to times of change through both resistance and forward thinking. Natalie calls herself a meeter and a maker, and turned her energy into activism when she worked on Hillary Clinton’s campaign. Post-election, Natalie returned to PDX and organized What Now, a powerful event at Revolution Hall discussing the future of the Portland community with 1500 passionate attendees.

Taking place at the Center for Architecture the morning of May 5th, this presenter will help convey to attendees the power of design in social activism. Complete with breakfast and coffee, the kickoff of Design Museum Mornings is not to be missed!
