- Add your StatusCamp here!!!
Raise Your Communities Status
We are encouraging the creation of StatusCamps much like StatusCampMontreal, but in your city! Here are some thoughts on how to make a successful StatusCamp. Much respect to Creative Commons Salons and WordCamps which really have pioneered the way for us to do great events!
StatusCamps are probably best organized as annual or semi-annual events. Some might want to do even monthly, but its best to pick a date and time that best fits your community. The first StatusCampMontreal we did as an annual event to coincide with the annual week of StatusNet employees in Montreal.
The best events are those that are free. Try to minimize the costs for your organizing group and especially for those that attend the event. If free is not possible, then figure out a rough estimate of how much you need, starting with the cost of the venue.
Pick a reasonable venue, ideally located next to public transit or that is near most of the people who might come to your event. Ideally, this venue will be free, but most definitely should be within your budget.
