About the event
Historical images can often feel distant and disconnected from the present—black and white, overly formal, tucked away inside rigid little rectangles. In this workshop we’ll connect with historical images by getting hands on—breaking the frame, cutting things apart, and collaging the past into the present. While we’re collaging, we’ll also learn how to find source material in digital archives, and techniques for crafting visual stories out of personal and public histories. This event is free and open to the public.
