MuseumABC – A to E

September 23, 2013


This week is going to be a little different on Museum Diary. It’s Social Media Week in several cities around the world, including Berlin, so over at Museum140 we’ve been planning a very special project for which we need your help.


It’s been a while since we ran a photography based project, so we thought it would be fun to create a visual Museum ABC, with photos to represent each letter of the alphabet. And that’s where you can join in! Throughout Social Media Week, you can share your photos on Twitter, Instagram and Flickr, and at the end of the week a selection for each letter will be collated in to Pinterest boards. Check out the Museum140 website for more info on how to get involved.

On Museum Diary this week, I’ll be sharing my own contributions for the Museum ABC, with 5-6 letters per day. So, let’s get started. It’s as easy as ABC…(sorry).

A is for altar

A is for…Altar

B is for beetles

C is for Concorde
