FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
We invite you to join the 4th Int’l Museum Workers Day #IMWD2018 on Thursday, JUNE 28, 2018.
International Museum Workers Day IMWD’s mission is to educate the broader public about various professions in museum and heritage fields – including all professionals who have worked with museums and heritage at various capacities, e.g. artists, designers, archaeologists, publishers, etc.
The global event will take place across various social media – Twitter, WeChat, Facebook, Instagram, Weibo, Tumblr, Pinterest, LinkedIn, VKontakte, YouTube, etc.
We also invite museum and heritage workers without regular access to social media to email us (firstname.lastname@example.org) their submissions.
Please visit IMWD2017 (link) for a report on the success of last year’s event during which art, museum and heritage workers from 150+ countries celebrated INT’L Museum Workers Day.
Artists, Designers, Heritage and Museum Professionals are invited to introduce their professions by sharing photos of themselves (& colleague), or of their favorite object, in their work enviroment.
Artists, Designers, Art & Museum Lovers are encouraged to give a SHOUT OUT to their favorite museum & heritage workers – something as simple as sharing a ‘Thank You’ note on your social media with hashtag #IMWD2018.
Relevant images – tagged #IMWD2018 or – may be shared across various platforms on our social media feeds.
NOTE: We will do our best to continue to share all submissions throughout the year, across social media.
The project was initiated by American museologist and filmmaker Homa Taj in 2015. The event was initially called Hug A Museum Worker Day in the same spirit as “International Hug a Medievalist Day.”
