What is #LondonView?
Every week, we’ll ask a different question about life in the city, on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram, using #LondonView. We’re using social media aggregator Stackla to collect these posts, to create a living picture of how people see the city. We'll then curate, remix and play back these posts during the City Now City Future season, sharing different views of the city we share.
How do I take part ?
- Check the Museum of London's Facebook, Instagram or Twitter feed to see this week's question. (Look at the #LondonView hashtag to get inspiration from what others are posting).
- Take a picture, record a video or write a message that answers the question with your #LondonView.
- Post on your Twitter or Instagram account using the hashtag #LondonView. We’ll do the rest. If you don’t have a Twitter or Instagram account, go directly to our website and post your image.
What will the Museum of London do with the #LondonView posts?
We're going to be sharing a moderated selection of posts tagged with #LondonView on our website and social media channels, giving a snapshot of what the city is thinking about. We'd also like to put the best and most interesting images on display at the Museum of London, and on posters across the city. We'll contact the authors to ask for permission. Our curators may also add selected posts and images to the Museum of London collection, creating a permanent record of Londoners' views in 2017-18.
Do I have to live in London?
No, we're interested in everyone's views of the city. We'll collect any posts that have the #LondonView hashtag, so if you live outside London, or are just visiting it, we'll still gather your view.
