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, or 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 come join your fellow campers for VRACamp. VRACamp, based on the unconference model, is an informal, no-pressure, participant-driven free 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. The overarching theme of VRACamp is image management. A call for discussion topics, tools, and project demos will be made a few weeks before Camp. Potential topics 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!
