LABoral at #MuseumWeek

24th to 30th march 2014

The first Museum Week on Twitter via Twitter

This initiative, which will take place throughout Europe between Monday, March 24 and Sunday, March 30, aims to put people in contact with art, history and science in an innovative and interactive way, providing them with direct access to some of the most important museums internationally and the people behind them.

Twitter is the place where users express their emotions, opinions and contact other people who share their same interests. Given the large number of cultural conversations that occur on the platform, the most important museums in Europe have come together to launch #MuseumWeek, a unique interactive experience for lovers of Art and Science.

Thanks to #MuseumWeek, in addition to offering their followers this multicultural project, museums will be able to discover new people interested in their works and enjoy a broader conversation with those who share their interests. Each day of the week will be dedicated to a theme determined to guide the conversation and facilitate its follow-up under the hashtag #MuseumWeek.
