(27/7/2005, Bristol, England) FAVE is a new event for people who are 
interested in free and open source creative software on Linux and 
other computer platforms. It's taking place on Saturday August 20th 
2005 at the Trinity Community & Arts Centre in Bristol, UK. Everyone 
is welcome, even if they have never used this kind of software 
before. Doors open at 10am and the event gets underway at 11am. Music 
will continue into the evening, and the whole event costs just £5 to 
get in. 
This is no dry, dull conference! It will be an accessible festival of 
fun with performances, presentations and workshops. Topics will 
include music production, recording and do-it-yourself film making. 
There will be sessions covering community media, streaming content 
servers, tangible interfaces, digital TV regulation and Creative 
Commons licensing. Networking, internet access and media streaming 
will be provided by Bristol Wireless.

James Wallbank - Art for all at Access Space
