From the community, For the community: What is Open Culture Foundation?

The organization of open source events in Taiwan can be attributed to the volunteers and resources from local communities. While preparing for these events, what are the difficulties "community member" might encounter? And how did local communities overcome these difficulties by establishing a "legal entity" and providing administrative support for more than 20 open source communities in Taiwan?

This talk will share the establishment of Open Culture Foundation (OCF) and answer the following questions. How did OCF start in the communities? Why do the communities need OCF? What role does OCF play in the communities? How does OCF support the communities and also grow with the communities?
