2/24: Creative Mornings Baltimore

Friday, February 24, 2017 | 8:30 AM

Join us for Creative Mornings Baltimore at Maryland Art Place!

This speaker series, titled "Moments", will feature former Baltimore City Archives and current Maryland State archivist Jessica Douglas.

Born and raised in Baltimore, Jessica is an archivist at the Maryland State Archives and history enthusiast who enjoys reading, live music and exploring and photographing Baltimore. She is a member of the Advisory Board for the Preserve the Baltimore Uprising 2015 Digital Archives, a user-submitted digital archives that maintains a large collection of photographs, videos, oral interviews and emails related to the Baltimore Uprising. She urges people to document and “archive” their own experiences to preserve contemporary moments that might otherwise disappear with time.

She recently spoke at the 2016 Mid-Atlantic Regional Archives Conference about using readily available resources, such as smartphones, social media and free open-source programs, to capture, document and archive their surroundings. She hopes to show the ease with which anyone can preserve history according to those most closely involved in the moment, rather than allow history to be filtered by outside or removed perspectives, which often silences the voices that can offer the most accurate, well-rounded representation of a moment in time.

Event will take place Friday, February 24, 2017 from 8:30-10 am at Maryland Art Place.

Reigstration opens Feburary 20 at 10am.  To register, click here.
