A group who wish to help with the delivering of Open Source City
Open Source City is a ‘permanent festival’ and celebration of an open sharing of creative and disruptive thinking, information and technology use to change the way our world works, artists, technologists, thinkers and makers radical and conservative.
We say permanent because we want this to be a supportive platform for the amazing stuff that goes on already in the city that has a connection to the idea of open information: so open data, open source software, open hardware, open collaboration, open source swan pedalos. We dont want to be the best festival in the world we want it to be about sustaining and commissioning new work in the city and sharing it on a public platform.

It aims to:
• Make Liverpool a centre of openness and creative thinking
