According to wikipedia, an unconference is a: conference where the content of the sessions is driven and created by the participants. Generally, unconference style events are community organised, informal and social events where participants provide the content and facilitation for the event.

The jokaydia Unconference has been designed inline with barcamp facilitation strategies, and is aimed at providing and a more informal, social and collaborative conference experience in Second Life.


Everyone! The jokaydia Unconference has been designed to provide an opportunity for those working in virtual worlds to come together to share and collaborate. If you have a great idea, a fantastic project or a brilliant artwork, we'd love to hear from you!

We would also welcome support in managing the event, and providing some newbie events and experiences throughout the weekend.

For further information please feel free to contact Jo Kay - IM jokay wollongong in Second Life or email: joannamkay@gmail.com.
