Libre Graphics Meeting + SCaLE 2018

This year is starting off great with not one, but two libre graphics oriented events (one in Europe and the other in North America - for even better coverage)! Now you can double your opportunities to visit like-minded Free Software graphic artists, photographers, and developers.

Come and join us for the 13th annual Libre Graphics Meeting (LGM) being held April 26–30 in Seville, Spain! LGM is a wonderful opportunity for artists, developers, and contributors to meet face-to-face and share/learn from each other. Several GIMP developers will be holding an annual team meeting there (as usual), so come and say hello!

The main programme this year is focusing on:

  • Technical presentations and workshops for developers.
  • Showcases of excellent work made using libre graphics tools.
  • New tools and workflows for graphics and code.
  • Reflections on the activities of existing Free/Libre and Open Source communities.
  • Reflections and practical sessions on promoting the philosophy and use of Libre Graphics tools.
