Flags of (almost all) countries based out of which museum & heritage workers engaged with IMWD2017.

 

Founded by Homa Taj, International Museum Workers Day (IMWD) is a global community of heritage and museum professionals — including: artists, scholars, art historians, scientists, archaeologists, anthropologists, curators, filmmakers, performance artists, designers & many other — whose expertise, years of experiences and dedication help create, discover, preserve, and disseminate our tangible and non-tangible cultural heritage.

To celebrate #IMWD2017 & #IMWD2018, we invited museum and heritage workers from around the globe – including artists, scholars, art historians, scientists, archaeologists, anthropologists, curators, filmmakers, performance artists, designers & many other whose expertise, years of experiences and dedication help create, discover, preserve, and disseminate our tangible and non-tangible cultural heritage.
