What is MuseumWeek?

A GLOBAL CULTURAL COMMUNITY FOR SOCIAL IMPACT

MuseumWeek is an international community of professionals working in Galleries, LibrariesArchives, Museums, Science and Music Centers, or any other cultural organisations, interested into having a social impact through Culture, by organizing online and offline events. MuseumWeek also brings together a global community of artists and digital creators committed to social change.

WHY MUSEUMWEEK?

Because consciousness and hopes are being forged online, we strongly believe that cultural organizations have a fundamental role to play to build and shape more resilient and democratic societies. They are the catalysts of more creative societies and more involved in their own future.

Since 2014 MuseumWeek has grown to include over 60,000 participants from 100+ countries. It has has become the first virtual, worldwide cultural event on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Weibo, WeChat and VKontakte.

WHO’S RUNNING MUSEUMWEEK?

MuseumWeek is organised by Culture For Causes Network, an official French non-profit organisation that promotes artists, museumslibrariesgalleriesarchivesart fairsfoundations and all cultural institutions around the world by the organisation of events on social media and sometimes in the physical space.

MuseumWeek couldn’t be organized without the help of a team of enthusiasts and committed volunteers, most of them working in GLAMs. No MuseumWeek without them!

MuseumWeek 2022

Culture, society & innovation

In a hyper-connected, hyper-globalized world, in which consciousness and hopes are being forged online, in a complex, rapidly changing world that is facing major challenges that concern all of humanity, we believe that cultural organizations have a fundamental role to play. They can accompany the audiences in these changes, prepare and structure minds, be the crucible of more agile societies in the face of the changes brought by digital technology, be the catalysts of more creative societies and more involved in their own future. Thus, in 2022, MuseumWeek will focus on the theme of “culture, society and innovation“.

13-19 JUNE 2022

The global theme is about innovation & culture and we will take this opportunity to explore 6 other topics in the whole cultural ecosystem, online and offline:
