1111 Jones St, Omaha


A Work in Process

At BarCamp, we’ve ditched the predetermined speaker list. We’re a user-generated, creative unconference that provides a space for everyday humans to share their passions. Talks aren’t scheduled until just before the conference starts, and anyone can speak — though it’s just as rewarding to sit back and listen. There’s no bar (except for drinks at the opening party) and no camp (unless you bring your own tent). But there’s a whole lot to discover.

This year, we celebrate process. How do we get from A to B, and where do our creative worlds collide? BarCamp 2018 invites you to share your messy, extraordinary, perhaps unfinished creations — because we’re all a work in process.

New this year thanks to Emspace + Lovgren: apply for a BarCamp scholarship by July 14!

7pm | *NEW* BarCamp Coworking | No More Empty Cups

Whether you have a last-minute talk idea, need advice on your slides or want to practice before the big day, join us for a casual coworking night where you can refine your BarCamp talk, featuring input from community mentors in public speaking and creative presentations.



7pm | Opening Party | Hi-Fi House

Get pumped for the opening party at Hi-Fi House! Each BarCamp ticket purchase gets you one free drink ticket. This party and its cash bar is open to the public, so bring your friends — you can always purchase BarCamp tickets at the door. We’ll have a photobooth, choice tunes, great company and — importantly — pizza.

9pm | Prize Giveaways

All partygoers are entered for a chance to win prizes ranging from subscriptions to swag bags and more.



8am | Breakfast + Sign Up | KANEKO

Grab a bagel and coffee, sign up for a talk, and get to know your fellow BarCampers.

8:45am | BarCamp 2018 Kickoff

Our emcee duo, Flame Schoeder and Will Riley, will lay some ground rules for the day. We’ve got a lot in store this year, so get there early!

9am | Morning Talks Begin

We’ll start the first round of talks promptly at 9am — get ready to learn and to share. Hosts from FireBelly Rep will be at each track to help speakers with audio/video needs and emotional support. And thanks to Tech Omaha, we’re able to film talks at every track.

12pm | Lunch

Grab a sack lunch and catch up with old and new friends. We’ve got a special lunch activity in the works this year, where you’ll have the chance to impact the future of BarCamp. More details coming soon.

1pm | *NEW* Special Round: Lightning Talks

Want to share, but don’t have enough content for a half hour? No worries! We’re hosting a special round of (5) 5-minute lightning talks at each track.

1:30pm | Half-Hour Talks Resume

Round out the last few hours of BarCamp and pop into a track you haven’t been to, or sign up for a talk of your own!

4pm | Closing Ceremony

Say goodbye to another year of BarCamp. But stay tuned — we’re planning extended programming in 2019.
