#MuseumSurvivalKit is a collaborative social media project designed to share tips, tricks, and tools rooted in the traditional skills and life ways found in our museums and cultural organizations.
From June 1-5, museums and museum folk nationwide are invited to share “survival skills” inspired by museum content or collections. Institutions and individuals can help build this virtual survival skit of tips, tricks and tools rooted in history by posting a video, Instagram or Facebook post, or blog entry tagged with #MuseumSurvivalKit. Together, these posts will demonstrate the incredible range of creative ways our ancestors (and contemporary communities) have found to care for themselves and others during tough times.
If you have historic or community-based knowledge to share, you can participate. The project was initially conceived to highlight museums as culture bearers that preserve and share useful skills - but we know that these skills are found not only in history museums, but in art museums, science centers, archives, libraries, community centers, arts organizations, and in individuals themselves. If you have something to share that fits the project guidelines, please participate!
