If you’re a musician or a music lover, you will probably have been to a musical jam.
If you’re a poet or a appreciator of poetry, you will probably have been poetry jam.
Whether you’ve experienced any type of jam or not, allow us to introduce you to the global jam. The jam is a place where you come together with like-minded people, bringing your ideas, your skills and your tools to create something special. Like a music or poetry jam, a theme is set and you start to jam around it, you don’t discuss it too much or over analyse it, you just bounce around ideas of others, interpret it in your own way, play around with it and see what comes up. Who knows at the end of it you may come up with something that you could actually produce or sell and if not at least you’ve had an amazing time jammin’.
The Global Jam works in just the same way. But it’s not music or words you are Jamming – it’s ideas. Over 48 hours, you have a great time, learning new things improving your skills and getting to know great people you might never have met before, bouncing ideas off one another and building on what bounces back. But rather than just talking you actually get to make physical things. Perhaps you’ll come up with a useful new service, a physical device, an initiative, a network, or something no-one has thought of yet. That’s the challenge of the Jam.
A GLOBAL COMMUNITY
One of the most exciting things about the Global Jam is that it takes place simultaneously in multiple locations, in various different cities around the world, which means that you could upload your idea to the internet on the 1st March and a jammer in Barcelona reads up on your idea and you giving you the opportunity to make a special connection.
The Jam is open to everyone, from all walks of life so if you’re a lover of creative ideas or looking to unleash your inner creative an have an epic unique experience, the Jam is for you!
