BarCamp 2.0: Outside the bubble

International BarCamp for the book and creative industry will be held for the second time!
Goethe-Institut Ukraine, Frankfurter Buchmesse, Mystetskyi Arsenal & the Book Arsenal festival invite you to the digital BarCamp “Outside the bubble: New alliances in the book and creative industry” that will be held on December 2nd.

What is BarCamp

BarCamp is an intensive and participatory conference in which the participants themselves can, to a certain extent, shape the program and identify the topics that are relevant to them. There are no viewers at BarCamp, everyone is an active creator. As the leaders of the sections, we have invited 5 well-known experts from Germany.

Points of our conversation

  • Scouting: how editors look for the new voices.
  • Professional associations: based on the experience of the German Translators Union.
  • What it means to be a producer of online content for book promotion.
  • Collaborative trends and initiatives of German-language book publishing.


Date of BarCamp: December 2nd, 12:00 to 17:00 (Kyiv time)

Working language: English

Format: online

A Telegram chat will start three days before the event, so that participants and speakers can have an opportunity to talk about the topics and content of BarCamp.

Registration deadline: November 25th, 2021

Partners: Digitizing.Space, Proto produkciia

Who can apply

Professionals from the book industry whose profile is relative to the program theme can apply.

​Please note:
We can invite to participate at the BarCamp only one participant from each organisation/company.
The working language of the BarCamp will be in English.


And yes, we also experience the lack of informal communication with our colleagues from the related fields. Therefore, at the BarCamp, all the participants will have an opportunity not only to communicate in the course of the main program, but also to join a digital party in Gather.Town.
