Perhaps you can share expertise in the 'How' of Libre Graphics? Could you talk about Design techniques and workflow? Pre-press, or Themes and Skins for open source web frameworks. What about Digital asset management? What about the Why? Communication strategy and effective marketing using graphic design. Open Source publishing? What about Digital Art just for Art's sake? Perhaps you have other ideas that relate to Libre Graphics?

Since 2006, the Libre Graphics Meeting has been the premiere conference for developers, users and supporters of projects such as GIMP, Inkscape, Blender, Krita, Scribus, Hugin, the Open Clipart Library, and the Open Font Library gather to get together to work on interoperability, shared standards, and new ideas. Work at prior LGMs has pushed the state of the art in important areas such as color management, cross-application sharing of assets, and common formats.

Libre Graphics Day is a practical celebration and exploration of Free, Libre and Open Source graphic software. Inspired by the fabulously successful Libre Graphics Meeting this is a regional event for those who've stuggled to make it to the annual meeting.

Since 2006, the Libre Graphics Meeting has been the premiere conference for developers, users and supporters of projects such as GIMP, Inkscape, Blender, Krita, Scribus, Hugin, the Open Clipart Library, and the Open Font Library gather to get together to work on interoperability, shared standards, and new ideas. Work at prior LGMs has pushed the state of the art in important areas such as color management, cross-application sharing of assets, and common formats.

Face-to-face meetings and opportunities for collaboration are important to developers and users alike; in the form of tutorials, talks, workshops, and birds-of-a-feather (BOF) the event offers many formal and informal opportunities to interact.

We hope Libre Graphics Day plays a small part in further contributing to LGM's aims.
