    Sunday – #PoseMW

    ‘Picture yourself in the museum, pose and interact with its contents and exhibits! Are you a museum piece? A work of art?.’

    Posing as works of culture; recreating works. Could be in front of or from online picture/postcard.  Try to mimic Van Gogh or recreate a scene from an art work. This is not a simple selfie day – you should use the picture to re-create a scene. Encourage your friends and family to get involved.

    Examples :

    Your visitors can PoseMW in front of sculptures:

    Other Examples:
    For #MuseumWeek – encourage your followers to get involved by asking them to pose in front of your collection.  Recreate the scene they see or what they think will happen next.

    Remember:  this doesn’t have to be works just from what is available on display – encourage your visitors and followers to explore your online collection and be creative!

    If your museum has done this imitation/pose activity before, share the picture again!  Doesn’t have to be created on the #PoseMW day, we’re not going to check the timestamp 😉

    Most importantly, like all hashtag events, just have fun with it!
