MMSt50 during #MuseumWeek
From May 13-19, 2019 is the annual #MuseumWeek, the 1st worldwide cultural event on social networks, bringing together cultural institutions from all over the world based on the idea of “7 days, 7 themes, 7 hashtags”.
As part of MMSt50, we invite MMSt alumni to take part in the challenge and engage in the conversation on the social platform of their choice, or on the MMSt Alumni Facebook group, using the dedicated #MuseumWeek and #MMSt50 hashtags. This is a great opportunity to connect with alumni around the world and share your experience as an active or retired museum professional!
Watch the MMSt accounts for each day's challenge and how to participate!"
Here are each day's themes:
