Get ready for #MuseumWeek 2019

Dear All,

From 13 to 19 May the ITP team will be participating in the 6th edition of #MuseumWeek, a digital event bringing together cultural institutions from all over the world. The initiative aims to create and promote cultural experiences, connect internationally and increase the digital presence of museums and cultural institutions.

How does it work?

The rules are simple and based on the idea of ‘7 days, 7 themes, 7 hashtags’. This means that from Monday, 13 May onwards we will be sharing one post daily, featuring a theme and hashtag suggested by the promoters. These are themes given by #MuseumWeek to be used as inspiration this year:

May 13: #WomenInCulture

May 14: #SecretsMW

May 15: #PlayMW

May 16: #RainbowMW

May 17: #ExploreMW

May 18: #PhotoMW

May 19: #FriendsMW

Be sure to follow us on Twitter and Facebook next week as we have prepared some exciting posts and activities for you!

Want to take part?

It couldn’t be easier. Simply write posts related to the themes listed above and share them daily on your or your institution’s social media platforms. And don’t forget to add the hashtags! For more details about the themes check #MuseumWeek website.

As statistics indicate, some continents were significantly underrepresented in the previous editions, that is Africa (0.6%), Latin America (5%) and Asia (8%), so we want to encourage you to show your presence this year and showcase your institutions, your collections, projects and programmes! Let us know if you or your institution will be participating and if you need any advice, please just ask.

See you on Monday!
