Archival Magic

April 30, 12:00pm - 1:00pm EDT. Hosted at FieldTrips on Zoom


About this FieldTrip

Archives are magic! Thanks to the power of the internet, your next creative project could be built, assembled, remixed, or woven with free media from the past. Whether your interest is science or pop culture, there are databases out there that have archived and cataloged images, videos, and audio that fit your needs. Attendees on this Field Trip will learn where these resources are and how to use them, with a quick brush-up on copyrights. Attendees will be empowered to incorporate often-free media assets into their next projects to add some depth and originality that no stock photo company will ever match.
