Campus Party (“CP”) was founded in 1997 as a gaming and demo scene event. The first edition took place in Málaga, Spain and has evolved over the past two decades into a global movement. Campus Party brings together thousands of talents in a global festival of innovation, creativity, science, entrepreneurship, arts and entertainment seeking innovative solutions through cross-community collaboration.
Known as “Campuseros”, participants camp out in tents as they engage in a 24-hour-a-day technology fest. Campus Party is now the world’s largest technology experience with 65 editions across 5 continents – South America, North America, Europe, Oceania and now Asia. The Singapore edition will be held at Singapore EXPO Hall 7 from 6 to 8 July 2018. Singapore is the first ASEAN country to host Campus Party. The event will see more than 6,000 participants, 120 speakers and global Campuseros, 80 communities from a myriad of disciplines, and more than 300 hours of cutting edge content.
The Campus Party Movement: Connecting change-makers and innovators
Campuseros will embark on a unique learning journey – creating, innovating and collaborating with others. They will join a global community movement where thousands of talents from various fields come together to challenge conventional thinking.
The festival provides the perfect platform for different communities within our local community to connect. Through the crossing of technology with other disciplines, there is a breaking down of barriers and something new can be created. The best part about Campus Party is the recognition that everyone can be an innovator, an inventor or change-maker because each person’s life experience brings value to a collaborative effort. In addition, through Campuseros’ exposure to thought-provoking dialogue with global Campuseros, ideas can be further developed and tested.
Through this active, collaborative, community-driven approach, participating campuseros will find themselves beginning to take part in projects they never imagined they would try, or experiment with ideas or new partnerships that they never had the courage to start.
