Project Name: Software Freedom Day Canberra
Aim of Project:
To highlight the benefits of Free Software to a group of computer consumers.
Person Responsible for Request:
Daniel Black (Canberra Linux Users Group)
SFD Sponsorship <$150 (still waiting of final costing)
CLUG members have held an event a SFD event at the Canberra Computer Markets
over the last 5 years. We have progressively received a higher awareness
amongst the computer market customers as to what software freedom and free
This year we hope to continue this tradition on the 18th September. In this
event we will continue to promote the benefits of freedom to new buyers of
computer gear that visit the markets and to a large proportion of business and
government people visiting the market in a personal capacity.
The computer market is a commercial entity that provides stall holders access
to a consolidated market. They have typically offered some discount on stall
costs to us however due to late organisation the exact total is unknown. The
funding amount of $150 (or less) will cover the cost of 1-2 tables at the
venue and reimbursement of the $3 entry fee to our volunteers (if they happen
to be charged this).
The presence at the computer market will be used to promote a Linux
Installfest organised for the 23 September.
I realise this request is within 2 weeks of the actual event. Apologies for
its lateness. Individual(s) have agreed to fund this activity in a personal
capacity. This event will go ahead regardless of LA funding however its
benefits are for the wider community and having individuals not out of pocket
would be great if you consider the cause appropriate.
Thanks for your consideration,
