Way to #showyourculture!

By on Apr 3, 2015


When you work at an arts and cultural organization, it can be easy to get caught up in your daily administrative tasks: this board meeting is coming, this campaign letter needs to get out the door, and we need to sell more tickets to this upcoming event. But the truth is, you and your colleagues are having such an impact on the communities around you.

And that’s what #showyourculture is all about – seeing the special memories your organizations are helping to create!

Here are 2 of our favorites:

Our winner  for free tickets to an arts and cultural event is @DCDCLive, for their tweet of their performers in Santiago, Chile. What an amazing, international cultural experience!
