It's baaaack... On January 20th twitter and instagram feeds will get a burst of fun from #MuseumSelfie day. (also, some places that use tumblr join in as well, some of my fave finds from last year are here)
"Whether you work in a museum, are a museum mascot or one of the lovely visitors - post your pictures using #MuseumSelfie!" Find out more here.
It's a bit sad that CultureThemes has to clarify: "Do not make this a political debate on photos not allowed in museums/galleries or that your local museum is closed on a Wednesday."
It sounds like some people have misunderstood "fun" and "promoting culture" or have willfully tried to hijack it...
Get involved, even if you just browse for the images, since they are usually fun, inventive, sometimes offer a look behind the scenes and can provide a new perspective on some objects and roles.
