(the wiki program below is not updated as frequently, the authoritive program is on the site. Although - as this is a wiki, if you notice a discrepancy, update it here, the LGD website is right. Yes, yes it is.)

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.

The LGD miniconf is being organised by Donna Benjamin, Jon Cruz and Tina Cruz

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.
