Raising the profile of Museums in May

17 April 2019

Building on the success of #NIMuseumsDay last May NIMC is encouraging individuals and organisations to participate in #MuseumWeek this year to help raise the profile of museums with the public and connect the museum community with each other and the wider cultural sector online. NIMC will be promoting the campaign across its 3 social media channels; Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.

#MuseumWeek is taking place from 13 – 19  May 2019. Included during this week is International Museums Day on 18 May. The week will bring together cultural institutions from all over the world based on the idea of ‘7 days, 7 themes, 7 hashtags’.

#WomenInCulture kickstarts the week on Monday 13 May to highlight the role of women in culture yesterday, today and tomorrow, and it is the main theme throughout the week. All themes for the week are outlined below:

Monday 13th May: #WomenInCulture
Tuesday 14th May: #SecretsMW
Wednesday 15th May: #PlayMW
Thursday 16th May: #RainbowMW
Friday 17th May: #ExploreMW
Saturday 18th May (International Museums Day #IMD2019): #PhotoMW  
Sunday 19th May: #FriendsMW

So, in advance of #MuseumWeek, start thinking about the part you can play in all these themes, by organising special events – online or on-site – for your visitors throughout the week. For further information and for ideas on how to celebrate #MuseumWeek see weblink
