Gracie Price created a 7-day social media challenge called #museumofme to encourage museum professionals and aficionados to connect with one another amidst COVID-19. This post shares summary of all my posts for the #museumofme photo challenge.
How does #museumofme work?
#museumofme was created by Gracie Price. This is what inspired her and how she envisioned the challenge:
The goal of the Museum of Me is to allow museum professionals and visitors to share more about their lives – connecting with like minded individuals.
Guided by a week of prompts participants can share photos and short descriptions about small areas of their lives on Twitter or Instagram using #museumofme
Here were the prompts:
My #museumofme Photo Challenge Summary
1. Photo of you as a child
My family jokes that I always loved school. When my parents dropped me off for my first day of school, I was so pumped that when we got there I walked in and immediately told them ‘Bye!’ Here is a picture of me in preschool. 2. Something you collect
I have collected stamps since I was in 4th grade. My collection is filled with stories, gifts, and memories that I treasure. Trust me, everyone in my family knows not to come in the room when I am hanging out with my stamps. 3. Someone important to you
My Mom is one of the major reasons why I started (and continue) to create digital content around archaeology + travel. She reads every blog post (and texts me when she catches spelling or grammatical mistakes). 4. Your favorite object
2 decades ago I got this blanket from India. It’s cozy, a decent size to share, and has a comforting weight to it. It often moves with me and I am not the only one who enjoys it. *Not pictured: Me! 5. A book that represents you
My Mom gifted me this book around 20 years ago. While I’m not a clueless cook (or a teen) anymore, this book is decently traveled, slightly aged, and filled with memories (with room for more) – which represents me. 6. Your family
This picture is definitely the smallest version of my family (me, Christian, and Teddy). Not picture: Mom, siblings, inlaws, grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins, and members of our chosen family. 7. Home
For (almost) the past two years, Baltimore has been our home. Here is a view from peeking around the corner from our balcony. Closing Thoughts
I really enjoyed participating in this photo challenge. Besides sharing a bit more with my community, I was also able to reconnect and reminisce with people from my past. It was a definite bright spot during this challenging time. Finally, I want to thank
Gracie Price for creating a 7-day social media challenge.
