Our diverse com­mu­nity includes ama­teur and pro­fes­sional con­tent cre­ators and com­mu­ni­ca­tors. This includes folks from all areas of new media — writ­ers, pro­duc­ers, pho­tog­ra­phers, design­ers, pod­cast­ers, devel­op­ers and bloggers.

Uncon­fer­ences are facil­i­tated, participant-driven events cen­tred on a theme or pur­pose. The first Pod­Camp was held in Boston in 2006. Since then, new media and tech­nol­ogy com­mu­ni­ties in numer­ous cities have held PodCamps.

When some­one signs up to attend Pod­Camp they become a par­tic­i­pant. Because we’re an uncon­fer­ence, we ask our par­tic­i­pants to pro­vide the pro­gram­ming and ses­sions. To speak at Pod­Camp is to share knowl­edge, exper­tise and per­spec­tive while facil­i­tat­ing a dis­cus­sion. Par­tic­i­pants at Pod­Camp bring their curios­ity and pas­sion for new media and creativity.

Par­tic­i­pants at Pod­Camp exer­cise the Law of Two Feet. That is, when a par­tic­i­pant finds they are not learn­ing or con­tribut­ing to dis­cus­sion, they must find a dis­cus­sion where they can learn some­thing by tak­ing their “two feet” else­where. Par­tic­i­pants also cross-pollinate ideas by spread­ing dis­cus­sion ideas as they go. In addi­tion to lots of con­ver­sa­tion in the halls, we always have a vibrant Twit­ter stream of ideas emerg­ing from sessions.

Fol­low the #PCTO15 hash­tag to keep up and join in on those conversations!

Q: What do I get out of volunteering?

What don’t you get?! You’ll be part of Toronto’s coolest digital media community, attend some great sessions and meet awesome people.
