Linux & Open Office for Non-Profits
Saturday 21 April

Have you used Microsoft Windows or Mac since school?

Why do organisations struggling for income have to pay these big American
corporations?
You may know there’s an alternative kind of free software called Linux. If
you’re curious but uncertain how to try it, this workshop is for you.

It’s a gentle introduction; Linux for beginners.
How to do ordinary office tasks and more – without any geeky technical
language.

9.30 coffee/registration. Workshop 10am-1pm.

Additional free help available in the afternoon after the workshop.

The workshop leader is Jonathan Cook, Access Space's Administration and
Development Manager. He's an experienced administrator with qualifications
in management accounting, adult education, social science and activism &
social change.

Access Space has used Linux and Open Source software from the day it opened
in the year 2000, and we do all our day-to-day work running the
organisation using it.
