Gif It Up – Advance your Gif making skills

October 26 @ 1:30 pm - 4:30 pm

Build on your Gif making skills and flex your creativity by making clever and graphically fun gifs from openly licensed and public domain, museum, library, and archival materials.

Europeana.eu celebrates GIFs

From 1 – 31 October each year, all GIF-­makers, cultural heritage enthusiasts and lovers of the internet are invited by Europeana.eu to create brand new GIFs by remixing copyright-free and openly licensed material from four international digital libraries.

Our Intermediate to Advanced Workshop

This course is best suited to those who have attended the introductory Gif making workshop or who have some basic experience using graphic editing software tools.

In this intermediate-to-advanced workshop you will advance your Gif making skills using free and open editing software and tools that anyone with an internet connection can access.

We’ll be using public domain and openly licensed images and materials from The University of Edinburgh museum, library, and archival materials that are available for creative re-use, We’ll also discuss the ethical responsibilities we as creators have towards those materials.


Make a butterfly flutter, or autumn leaves swoosh, with Gifs that make you grin.


Participate in open sharing and collaboration – gifs created on the day will be openly licensed and re-shared for further creativity and re-use by others.
