Posted: Tuesday, 07 May 2019

The #MuseumWeek social media initiative is taking place online from 13 - 19 May. The campaign will feature 7 different hashtags -1 a day- in a joint worldwide event. Generating social media traffic, fostering diversity and encouraging creativity will be the name of the game.
