MediaBarCamp is a space where activists from different spheres gather to share their experience (achievements, tools and approaches that helped them) implementing projects or initiatives. Here activists network and have an opportunity to work together. They INSPIRE one another to come back to local communities with some new ideas or even joint projects to make an impact and proceed with their activism. Participants are creating the most parts of 4 days event at various spaces and several venues by sharing their activism experience, various projects and points of views, sparkling discussions and other initiatives. MediaBarCamp is a space where individuals share their experience on activism despite their membership or relation to the organizations/projects/initiatives.
