Hello Louis, list,

I've been talking with Marcos Garcia from Medialab Prado [1] about LGM and as he reminds me every time we meet: Medialab Prado would very much like to invite LGM 8 to Madrid :-)

Constant worked with Marcos, his colleague Laura Fernandez and the organisation several times over the last few years and I am convinced that their interest in Libre Graphics is genuine and long-term.

Medialab Prado is well networked with the Spanish-speaking Free, Libre and Open Source Software community (including South America); they work closely with the open content movement, W3C and with designers and artschools. They are linked to universities and have the kind of venues and organisational power at their fingertips that LGM could benefit a great deal from. In short: I think this invitation to host LGM in Madrid in 2013 presents a wonderful opportunity.

Both Marcos and me are looking forward to meet you all in Vienna next May, but I just wanted to introduce the idea so you can think it over and prepare your questions. We are ready to make a formal proposal right after LGM 7!

All the best,
