The event is organized by a public body whose name could be translated as something like “the Collective Factory of the Libre Culture” (FCCL), which is a cool name, right? It’s rare enough to have public institutions funded by a city (in this case: Vandœuvre-lès-Nancy) encouraging Free Software usage, and this is why we accepted their invitation. As far as we know, ever since the global health crisis, it will be the first physical conference with contributors of GIMP. Quite strange to prepare talks again after 3 years! 🥲

We will obviously talk about GIMP and how it is developed as a community, since the concept of “Community, Free Software” is dear to me. We will also talk about “ZeMarmot“, the Free/Libre Animation Film produced by the non-profit LILA which crowd-funds our work (for the movie and GIMP development). So it will be the opportunity to discuss about various interesting topics, based on our concrete experience of running FLOSS and Libre Art projects.

We may also present some other Free/Libre movies we produced, such as the ones made on account of Framasoft: “What is Peertube?” and “What is the Fediverse?“).

So if you are in France around Vandœuvre-lès-Nancy on November 4, we hope we’ll see you there. 🤗 Otherwise, I am told that the talk will be streamed live 🖥️ (in French of course).
