One week from today, Twitter will be exploding with cultural goodness when #MuseumWeek kicks off. With 1400+ museums in 55 countries signed up (and that number continues to grow) there is truly something for everyone.
During the webinar last week, there were a few more questions asked and I thought I’d share them here: Read the rest of this entry »Tags: #museumweek, #museumweek2015, 26 museums, campaign, hashtags, twitter
Back in October (I think), David Mentiply mentioned he was organizing a Museum Marathon to raise funds for Guide Dogs. I can’t remember exactly how the conversation went but soon after, I booked my tickets for December 7th to take part.
Yesterday, I woke up at 5 am to catch the early train to London full of energy. Ok perhaps not quite that much energy but I was definitely excited. After dropping bags off to Lovely Laura (who I can’t thank enough for meeting me), I rushed to our meeting point: V&A.
When I arrived (slightly late), they were just doing a group photo. I was handed a Guide Dog mask and told to smile.
The day was pretty much going to continue on like that – I was surrounded by people who were prepared with paperwork and maps – scary stuff! My role as a follower was clearly labelled (and I was quite content in this role!). I was also going to try and Tweet as much as possible to share (and hopefully guilt a few into sending a donation!).Tags: 26 museums, charity, Museum, museum marathon
