Libre Graphics Meeting 2016 Comes to London

The eleventh annual edition of Libre Graphics Meeting will take place this spring at the University of Westminster, bringing together developers, users, and graphic artists passionate about Free/Libre and Open Source Software.

London, UK (10th March, 2016)

From April 15th – 18th, Westminster School of Media Arts & Design at the University of Westminster (London, UK), will host the 2016 edition of the Libre Graphics Meeting.

Now in its 11th year, the international Libre Graphics Meeting turns its focus for 2016 to the theme “Other Dimensions”, encompassing time-based media and the third dimension, new additions to LGM’s established focus on graphics.

From its first edition in 2006, held in Lyon, France, Libre Graphics Meeting has been a locus for software contributors, artists, designers, and users to come together and share their knowledge and to experience camaraderie. This year will see four days of presentations, talks, hacking sessions, workshops, and meetings.

Prominent software projects such as GIMP, Inkscape, Scribus, GNOME, and others will come together to demonstrate the progress on their projects and to discuss them within the context of the larger Libre Graphics community. LGM 2016 will play host to animators, architects, artists, book designers, cartographers, developers, documenters, educators, engravers, graphic designers, git visualizers, hackers, photographers, rasterizers, reverse engineers, tool makers, type designers, and video archivers (among others!).

The 2016 edition of LGM will have a full program of workshops, presentations and talks across the entire spectrum of Free/Libre and Open Source graphics projects and communities. The full program can be found online

LGM is fully open and free for the public to attend (visit to register). We welcome anyone with an interest in the world of Libre Graphics.

About Libre Graphics Meeting

Libre Graphics Meeting (LGM) is the annual gathering of contributors and users of Free and Open Source Software for graphics, design, and visual arts. This unique event brings together various groups that would normally interact online through mailing lists and forums. LGM has grown over the years to become an essential event for many projects to meet and collaborate. The ability to meet, the discussions, presentations, and feedback have been invaluable to the development of many projects and their communities. The event gives developers, contributors, and users a chance to get together, get things done, and to work on new ways to move their projects forward.
