17-24 May (Catch Up On Culture Week 2009)

Posted: Friday, 01 May 2009

17-24 May is being organised by the Irish Museums Association to gain visitors for our cultural heritage sites this spring. We have the potential to gain new audiences, provide free and enjoyable experiences, and encourage our visitors to return and use our venues more frequently over the summer. The week incorporates International Museums Day 18 May and European Museums at Night 15-18 May. See what your neighbourhood museum is doing for Local Authority Museum Day on 21 May by checking their programme for an event near you. See our information sheet for details of Catch Up On Culture Week and our list of partners to find out who is already on board. Download the logo for use on your venue's promotional literature.
