Do you have a passion for an idea or a topic that you would like to discuss, a concern or a problem that you would like to get solved, a favorite technology tool that you wish to share? Are you reluctant to present or ask questions in a traditional conference setting? If the answer is "yes" to any of these questions, then begin your VRA conference on an energetic note and come join us for VRACamp. VRACamp, based on the unconference model, is an informal, no-pressure, participant-driven event that seeks to both build community among curators, librarians, archivists, technologists, vendors, art historians, students and scholars as well as provide a forum for spontaneous conversation, the launching of new ideas, and the sowing of seeds for future collaborations. VRACamp 2014 will include time for general discussion and brainstorming, lightning rounds where an idea, hack, or project can be quickly shared, and opportunities to demonstrate your projects and products. A call for discussion topics will be made a few weeks before Camp. Potential topics may include metadata; digital curation; technology-based instruction; digital humanities; intellectual property; visual literacy; cross-disciplinary skill sets; or the future of the profession. Those with the most participant-generated interest will prevail, although time will be built in for the unexpected. VRACamp needs you, your creative ideas, and your participation so be a Camper and own a bit of VRA!
