Be2camp North West took place on 15 June 2010 at The Manchester School of Architecture (in the main studio, room 602, 6th floor).

Following the successful pattern of other be2camp events, be2campNW started soon after 1pm and finished early evening with a series of Pecha Kucha presentations, and then a tweet-up nearby (at the Sandbar). Presentations were streamed live via Ustream video, with Twitter providing an additional means of online feedback. Some photos were shared on Flickr (see album).

Be2campNW (Twitter hashtag for the event was #be2campNW) ran concurrently with the RIBA NW Festival in the region (the venue room was displaying work from architecture students produced for part of their evauation). The themes for this Be2camp were around public engagement with architecture, sustainability in its widest, 'resilient' sense, and of course the use of Web 2.0.
