SkeptiCamp Winnipeg is a conference for the sharing of ideas. It is free and open to the public: anyone can attend and participate! Presentations and discussions focus on science and free inquiry, and the audience is encouraged to challenge presenters to defend their ideas.
SkeptiCamp is based on the highly successful BarCamp model. The basic idea is that attendees are participants; everyone attending SkeptiCamp is encouraged to participate: this may take the form of presenting a short talk on a topic related to science and skepticism, helping coordinate and plan the event, or simply taking active part in the discussion.
We’re currently planning the Winnipeg Skeptics’ fifth annual SkeptiCamp event, which take place on 27 September 2014. If you’d like to attend, more details are available on the SkeptiCamp Winnipeg 2014 page. If you’re interested in presenting a talk related to science, skepticism, or critical thinking at SkeptiCamp, send us an email at SkeptiCamp@winnipegskeptics.com.
Videos from SkeptiCamp Winnipeg are available on our YouTube channel. If you’re interested in seeing, hearing, or reading about past SkeptiCamps, videos and some transcripts are also available on the individual pages for those events:
