Archival Magic

August 12, 8:30am - 9:30am EDT. Hosted at FieldTrips on Zoom


About this FieldTrip

Archives are magic, and if you missed the first session in April, we’re offering a repeat!

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, art, or pop culture, there are databases that have archived and cataloged images, videos, and audio that fit your needs. Attendees on this FieldTrip will learn where these resources are and how to use them, with a quick brush-up on copyrights. Attendees will be empowered to incorporate free archival media assets into their next projects to add depth and originality that no stock photo company will ever match.
