Animate your International Women’s Day with stickers and GIFs workshop

Every year, the Europeana Initiative and partners contribute to Women’s History Month by sharing stories about women from history, as well as stories about how projects and cultural heritage institutions are showcasing women’s history. This year is no exception. Here are some of the things you can look forward to this Women’s History Month.

Join our workshop

First of all, on 8 March, International Women’s Day, you can join the Europeana Foundation's online GIF-making workshop!

Women's accomplishments and contributions to society are often overlooked and it can be challenging to find material related to women's history in cultural heritage collections. In this workshop, you'll learn how to search through's cultural heritage collections to find material about women’s history. Then we'll explore simple techniques so you can create animated stickers and GIFs using free online tools. It’s open to all and no experience is necessary!
