The Great Escape! Announcing the UK Room Escape Game Unconference
This is the first UK Escape Game Unconference, and we hope the start of regular opportunities to get together and talk all things Escape Games. We will have three twenty minute slots at the start for more formal presentations, Scott Nicholson of the Toronto unconference hopes to Skype in, and then we will split up to discuss all the things that matter to escape game organisers.
The rules of an unconference – or Open Space – are simple, the agenda is made up by the people attending choosing what they want to discuss:
Whoever comes are the right people
Whenever it starts is the right time
Whatever happens is the only thing that could have
When it’s over, it’s over
Wherever it happens is the right place
Plus, the Law of Two Feet: If at any time during our time together you find yourself in any situation where you are neither learning nor contributing, use your two feet, go someplace else.
A voluntary donation of up to £8 on the night will cover room hire and refreshments, plus lots of post it notes and paper. If you can’t afford it, then have the event on us.
We’ll have a couple of scribes making notes, so we can catch up with anything that happened in a different bit of the room afterwards.
I’ll update this as plans evolve, and look forward to seeing you there.
