Camp Fandom is a BarCamp being held in Chicago on March 20, March 21, 2009 at Illinois Institute of Technology, McCormick Tribune Campus Center? The event is intended for Chicago's creative people who are trying to figure out how to use fan space to more effectively promote themselves, for fans looking to become more involved with the back end of the communities they are part of and entertainment companies looking for more exposure, fan fiction writers looking to find out how to get more readers. It is about supporting the structures that support our love of popular culture and learning how to support them better.
Because this is a barcamp, what actually happens will all depend on who attends so we really encourage the creative types and fans of popular culture to attend. If people are interested in presenting, they can sign up now on the BarCamp page or sign up the day of.
