Join Us and Get Involved in Some Social Media Challenges This November!
Social media is one of the most important ways the ITP communicates with its global network year-round. Our social platforms have become effective ways to share news and updates, blogs published on the ITP blogsite, and daily images and updates from the summer programme and other projects. The social media pages are also used to share sector news, resources, and external events and opportunities.
Apart from sharing out own news and content, we also like to get involved in existing online trends and challenges relating to arts, heritage and museums. This months there’s lots to get involved in with social media, which we hope the ITP network will join us in participating in:
Museum30 is back!! Each year the ITP gets involved with Museum30, a 30 day photography challenge which aims to celebrate everything great about museums and heritage. The challenge starts next Monday 1 November and you can get involved by sharing a photo related to the prompt of the day on social media (Twitter, Facebook, Instagram) and using #Museum30. There will be a new prompt everyday throughout the month of November and you can see Museum30 schedule in the link below and attached. We are looking forward to seeing your Museum30 submissions!

But if sharing an image every day for 30 days is too much of a commitment, you could think about taking part in Art For Your World – Go Green. On 5 November, the World Wildlife Fund and curatorial collective Artwise are partnering for a COP26 campaign event, #ArtForYourWorld, encouraging environmental awareness and work between the art and nature conservation worlds.
Museums and galleries are invited to come together in a show of solidarity by turning green – either visibly or virtually or both. On social media you can take part by using the #ArtForYourWorld to spread the word and post about any environmentally-focused exhibition, events, projects or activities you have programmed.

We really hope you might join us – and the rest of our global network – posting and sharing your images on your social media platforms. #Museum30 has already started and it’s great to see some fellows getting involved. Don’t forget to use the relevant hashtag – #Museum30 or #ArtForYourWorld – and tag the ITP so we can like, share, collect and collate your posts!
