1.What is your museum about and what is your work there?
We aim to share our passion for this radical art movement with the public, showcasing some of the biggest names and upcoming talent from all over the world. STRAAT is a street art graffiti museum for everyone, made possible by a dedicated team of enthusiasts. I am the Curator and Creative Director of the STRAAT exhibitions and connect artists to the museum with my perspectives on street art.
2.What is the impact on your digital activity? Do you have tips to share with your colleagues?
Instagram is very important for us. Especially during the lockdowns in the pandemic we stay connected with our followers / public by coming up with new material on our social media.
3.What advice would you give a visitor to fully discover your museum?
To fully experience the museum you should take the time. There are more than 150 artworks on side, many of them bigger than outside walls. We have a shop, a gallery and a beautiful view from our cafe. Make sure to get a nice cup of coffee there and make another walk through the museum.
