#MuseumWeek is the first worldwide cultural festival on social media!
For seven days, cultural and public institutions will be invited to show creativity with their smartphones on the occasion of this eighth edition!
The health crisis caused by the coronavirus has plunged the world economy into a recession. As billions of people around the world look to culture as a source of solace and connection, the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic has not spared the creative sector. In times of crisis even more, support for the creative industries is crucial, as is the spirit of creativity itself, in all its forms.
It is therefore natural that Culture For Causes Network, a non-profit association aiming to support causes of general interest on behalf of national, European or international organizations, and Art Explora, a philanthropic foundation with international ambitions, nomad, without collection and digital, as well as UNESCO around the ResiliArt program, have decided to join forces for the organization of #MuseumWeek 2021.
The organizers of #MuseumWeek will therefore solicit their network of more than 6,000 cultural institutions around the formula "7 days, 7 themes, 7 hashtags", with the concrete objectives:
● Reach out to connected audiences who are not interested in Culture and Art by exposing them to original cultural content;
● To stimulate the spirit of creativity and creation in each of us, especially that of young people;
● To strengthen the image of artists in society as actors who participate in the change of society
