Meet Your Museum

#MeetYourMuseum | #MeetYourMuseumOnline | #MuseumsFromHome

Looking for new ways to engage the public online and attract visitors to your institution this summer? Participate in the Alberta Museums Association's #MeetYourMuseum campaign!

The 2020 #MeetYourMuseum campaign provides AMA members with tools and resources to attract visitors and key stakeholders to their sites, both in person and online, and encourage them to engage on social media. The campaign is designed to increase awareness of Alberta museums, boost engagement, and promote joy and collective celebration of Alberta's culture and heritage. By participating in this campaign, members will also help develop a unified voice for the museum community, increase public engagement with museums, and support each other with their advocacy and awareness efforts. 

The campaign involves:

  • Encouraging visitors to participate online by sharing selfies and joining in on digital activities with the hashtags #IMetMyMuseum, #MuseumsFromHome, and #Staycation;
  • Sharing the AMA's #MeetYourMuseum and #MeetYourMuseumOnline images on social media along with your existing promotions; and
  • Inviting local elected officials to engage with your museum, whether in person or online.

 

The AMA has created resources for our members to support their marketing and awareness efforts and encourage a unified voice across the province. Click the links to the right to find:

  • A social media toolkit with #MeetYourMuseum and #MeetYourMuseumOnline promotional images for members to use in conjunction with existing promotions and / or across social media channels;
  • Template letters for a #MeetYourMuseum invitation to send to your elected officials; and 
  • A fact sheet that focusses on the value of arts, culture, and heritage institutions to society to use when engaging external stakeholders or promoting your work.
