Strike a Light is attending an interesting course in February 2012 called The Artist in the Archive run by an organisation called Archives for Creativity. See more about the organisation below.
Why Archives For Creativity?
Moving images are central to literacy today. They are transforming how we learn, how we play and how we communicate. We draw on television and film to inform our ideas and our vocabulary. But the rich works of the past are still locked up in archives, for use by the few. By using new technology and new business models we can combine preservation for the future with access for the public today. Moving images will become a source of ideas, creativity and stimulation alongside books and the written word.
