The Ladyfest arts festivals could be seen as an example of open source principles
in community organizing.

1) The notes of the development process of the first festival (Olympia, WA, 2000)
were posted online to serve as a resource for others who would want to organize
similar events. This included minutes of meetings, budgets, committee structure,
etc. 

2) The name was offered up for any other groups to use. As I understand it, the
only condition was that no city or town host a Ladyfest festival more than once.
(This rule was broken in 2005 when another Ladyfest festival took place in Olympia.)

More than 100 festivals have taken place since 2000... all over the US and the
world (Sweden, Brazil, Mexico, Italy, South Africa, etc). 


This is the statement from the first Ladyfest festival:

Ladyfest is a non-profit, community-based event designed by and for women to
showcase, celebrate and encourage the artistic, organizational and political work
and talents of women. It will feature performances by bands, spoken word artists,
authors, visual artists and more!!! It will include workshops, panels, and dance
parties. This is a woman-run event but all are welcome to attend.
