Creative Freedom Summit CfP 2024!

Hi everyone! We are excited to announce that there will be a second Creative Freedom Summit (January 23rd-25th, 2024)! If you’re just hearing about the Summit, it is a virtual event focused on promoting the use of Creative Free Software. After 2023’s exciting and successful debut, we have decided to organize another Summit for 2024.

While running last year’s event, we had many requests to submit session proposals, so this year we are running a Call for Proposals. We welcome you to submit your ideas by November 24th, 2023 via the Fedora Project CfP Platform (A Fedora Account is not required). We are looking for the following themes for sessions:

  • Look at what I made with free & Open Source creative tools - here’s how I made it
  • Here’s how to do this cool thing or use this feature in this free & Open Source tool
  • I work on this free & Open Source software - here are some new features, or we’d like your feedback
  • How we can improve our greater Open Source Design community

Call for Proposals

Submit your proposals via the Fedora Project CfP Platform. You can sign on using your GitHub, Gmail, or Fedora Account login credentials. The deadline for proposals is November 24th, 2023. On behalf of the organizers/review committee, we look forward to your proposals! If you have any questions, please feel free to direct them to

What to submit?

Generally, the sessions will be in one of these formats:

Session (25 minutes)
Session (50 minutes)

We are currently open for proposals for the following topics:

  • Accessibility
  • Community
  • Craft/Skills
  • Demo
  • Features/Enhancements
  • Open Source UX/Design
  • Other topic not listed

There is also an opportunity to incorporate external activities that fit with our community. For example last year we played virtual Pictionary, Gartic Phone, and gathered for a Hack and Craft! If you have an idea for a virtual social experience for the Creative Freedom Summit, we are open to your ideas and you are welcome to submit it under the “Other” topic on the CfP platform.

Questions, want to get involved, or simply want to promote?

Contact the organizing team by sending an email to We welcome those who want to get involved in organizing or anyone who wants to help us promote the event!

If you’d like to help promote: a like, share, posts, or sending to personal networks is always appreciated :raised_hands:


Would love to organise an Open Source Design community panel - anyone wanna co-organise?


Do you think it would be useful to include people from Architecture (TAD or other similar product) and cartography/GIS (QGIS, gvSIG,leaflet, etc.)?

There’s a part of the cfp process which asks what fedora projects/product the talk relates to - are these talks/session only open if you use/work with fedora projects?

Hi Eriol! Would you mind letting me know where it says that? Talks and sessions are open to all FOSS creatives - not just those involved with the Fedora project. Apologies for the confusion :slight_smile:

Hi Gerardo! Of course! Creative software is a broad umbrella, and it would be great to showcase as much of that as we can :slight_smile:
