The yearly Libre Graphics Meeting (LGM) gathers users and developers of Free, Libre and Open Source software for creative work. LGM is a self-organised event, put together by designers, artists, free culture activists and software developers because they want to make their Libre Graphics toolbox even better. All funds raised with this campaign will be used to reimburse travelcosts of participants actively contributing to the meeting.
The 2013 edition takes place from 10 to 13 April in Madrid, Spain and is hosted by Medialab
Prado. The meeting is themed Future Tools. How can we (re)invent a Libre Graphics workflow that supports collaboration and exchange? How can we develop tools for a Read-Write World?
LGM2013 is an opportunity for developers and users from all over the world to meet and exchange experiences, ideas and code. LGM2013 hosts team-meetings and workshops plus 65 inspiring talks to showcase new and upcoming projects such as Tupi, Kune, Synfig and Laidout and well-known free/libre softwares such as Gimp, Inkscape, Scribus, Blender and Krita. The program features typography, animation, open education, vector drawing, bitmap editing and open furniture. Participation is gratis and all presentations will be streamed to make them accessible for remote publics.
