This year at FOSSASIA under a new “Design, Art & Culture” track we aim to unite designers, artists and developers in FOSS. The goal of this track to showcase design/art/culture projects done within open source communities and in open source way, as well as strengthen the connections between designers and FOSS community.

Possible topics may include, but not limited to:
Design (Graphic, UX)
* FOSS Design Tools
* Design Techniques
* Design – Engineering Collaboration Approaches
* Project Case Studies
* Art projects with open source license
* Art & Open Source
* Culture of Open Source
* Open Source beyond software
FASSASIA is a biggest open source community and a conference in Asia, so it will be a great chance for attendees to expand the community in the region.
New design track in particular is an opportunity to spread the word among developers regarding how and where to get design help for their projects.
Another chance that this track provides is a help for non-code contributors to find their place in FOSS communities.
Volunteers from Open Source Design Community will promote several initiatives, like presenting successful projects and having a “jobs board” where FOSS projects looking for design contributors can connect with available designers.
