Social media is about to refresh what museums have best to offer. 

From 19 to 25 June 2017, museums from all over the world will have a chance to celebrate culture on Twitter.  Paris is no exception to the #MuseumWeek initiative.

For seven days, seven hashtags will be used on Twitter to promote the event, one different every day.

#FoodMW


Who doesn’t love visiting Museum cafés? After a visit there’s nothing better than sitting back and taking it all in with a coffee, but what food related art or exhibits actually in the museum is there anything you particularly love? Or is that café chocolate cake just a work of art in itself! Share today with #FoodMW!
WomenMW: Have food-related work by women artists in your collection? A still life of food? A contemporary woman artist who uses food in her artistic practice? An object owned by a prominent woman chef? Share it with #FoodMW and #WomenMW

Sometimes it feels like we have to be an Olympic hurdler just to get over the daily obstacles put in our way, but what about the sports related items in our collections? Do you have something iconic, important locally or just plain odd that relates to sports? Share today with #SportsMW
WomenMW: Share the achievements of women athletes or sports-themed artwork by women. Does a work by a woman in your collection depict a game or activity? Do you have objects related to famous women athletes? Post your content with #SportsMW and #WomenMW.

#HeritageMW

Celebrating and preserving heritage is our work of every day. What do you do for helping your audience to increase access to and to sustain heritage collections? Do you also have valuable collections in storage or online? In all its forms, heritage crystallizes our past and stimulates creativity; they are linked to culture and environment of our families, communities and nations. That is why we should protect them and pass them to the future generations. Celebrate them today with #HeritageMW.
WomenMW: Do you have heritage collections which are related to women, as creator, preserver and promotor? What are women in the world doing to protect their heritage and sustain them? What are their fear and hope? Why women are important to keep heritage alive? Share with #HeritageMW and #WomenMW.
