What is the Libre Graphics Meeting?
The Libre Graphics Meeting brings together developers and users
of free software graphics applications, such as the GIMP,
Inkscape, Scribus, Blender, Krita, the Open Clipart Library and
In its third edition, the organization needs your help! You can
support your favorite graphics application, and ensure that the
travel costs of as many volunteer developers as possible are
paid to ensure that this edition of the conference is more
successful that its predecessors. The conference is May 8 - 11
in Wroclaw, Poland.
Where will the money go?
We have kept costs associated with infrastructure to a minimum.
Over 80% of the conference budget will be spent on subsidizing
travel and accommodation costs for developers. $20K is the goal
to raise by Friday April 18! Help out!
A non-profit organization
All donations will be made to the conference organizers via the
GNOME Foundation, a 501(c)3 tax exempt US-based non-profit, so
donations will be tax deductible for US taxpayers. We would like
to thank the GNOME Foundation for their support.
