Let’s Make Memes for #MuseumPassion

This October we are joining the BBC in partnership with the Museums Association, National Museum Directors’ Council and Art Fund in #MuseumPassion. The #MuseumPassion event will take place on 15 October and is an invitation to museums around the country to promote their stories and heritage across different platforms like social media, TV and radio. 


Here is a link to this project on the Bowes Museum website:https://www.thebowesmuseum.org.uk/Learn/Young-People/Opportunities
