The purpose of our blog is to discuss topical issues, stories, and situations, as well as to share what we are up to and new ways for you to get involved. We are always searching for possible answers to the question: Why is a girl's worth culturally and historically relative?

Visual Essay Contest ‘Museums for Social Harmony’


This year the ICOM (International Committee of Museums) theme for International Museums Day (May 18) is ‘Museums for Social Harmony’.  While we have our own thoughts on this topic, we would like to hear from you.  So Girl Museum is hosting a contest to interpret this theme relating to girls issues using a visual essay. 

A visual essay is comprised primarily of images (photographs, drawings, paintings, etc) to illustrate your ideas, but you can include some words as well.

The visual essay that is the most creative, thought provoking and expressive of the theme will be posted on our website on International Museums Day as a part of our GirlSpeak series. 

Submit the file as a PDF to along with your full name and contact details.  Let us know if you have any questions.

The deadline is May 16th.  So get thinking!
