7 days of 7 daily Hashtags – But what do each of them mean?
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.
Your visitors can PoseMW in front of sculptures:
PoseMW with museum pieces (if allowed!):
PoseMW and mimic paintings
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!
