Welcome to the Un-University
ITP Camp is a 4-week crash course/playground for busy working professionals. Every June, we invite non-student makers, artists, musicians, creatives of all sorts, to come to ITP on evenings and weekends to make stuff, hear speakers on the cutting edge, collaborate with people from diverse disciplines.
ITP was founded and is grounded in the belief that making is fundamental to thinking. Like any summer camp, the atmosphere is playful, cooperative and collaborative but there's a serious purpose. We're looking for people who are seriously motivated... to save the world, their industry, their career or just their sanity by being creative; who are dying to make something or just make sense out of what they are doing.
The creative charge of ITP Camp comes from the community of participants sharing their ideas, skills, criticisms and passions with each other in small, informal groups. We're creating a flexible structure, an Un-University, that is responsive and supportive to the group we select. The structure is based on "unconferences" such as foocamp or barcamp, where presentations and discussions form in response to participants' interests and projects.
