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.
NIMC are co-ordinating online activity across the museum sector in NI and will be hosting two social media 'Take Over Days' by our volunteers. Alex Glover will be championing a prominent cause: #WomenInCulture on Monday 13 May and Vicky Jones will be sharing stories, photos, thoughts and opinions on the theme #PlayMW on Wednesday 15 May. So make sure to follow NIMC's Facebook, Twitter and Instagram pages and show your support for their contributions throughout the day.
