If you are interested in any of the following tasks please see this invaluable resource for info and ideas: https://mbharris.co.uk/articles/barncamp-a-diy-skillsharing-event/#getting-things-going

Please enter more tasks below as you think of them.

Feel free to start a wiki page for each task and break it down into subtasks - some of them are very big!

For tasks that involve making decisions, obviously very small decisions can be made by individuals or working groups but for larger ones the task involves enabling the wider group to come to a consensus

Working Groups

Each of these groups will take on a set of related tasks. Please join a team by adding your name at the bottom of each section
