Behind the scenes at the Festival of Museums

We plucked up the courage to brave the sights and frights of the University of Edinburgh’s Anatomical Museum when we helped unveil this year’s Festival of Museums programme.

Along with a team of school pupils we delved deep into the museum’s dark and mysterious archives to unearth some of its most horrible histories – including elephant skeletons, death masks and instruments made from human bones!

The 2015 Festival of Museums programme features over 100 day and night events specially curated to give visitors a unique glimpse inside Scotland’s best loved museums and encourage them to engage with culture in a unique, hands-on way.

It’s all happening on 15 – 17 May; find out more at www.festivalofmuseums.com.

Bring on the culture: Stripe launches Festival of Museums 2015

We’re very pleased to announce that Museums Galleries Scotland’s have chosen Stripe to help launch their annual event, the Festival of Museums. We’ll be working with the team at Museums Galleries Scotland to deliver regional PR and digital activity around the 2015 Festival of Museums. Combining the effective mix of online, offline, traditional PR and social activity, we’re thrilled to be a part of such a culturally rich and diverse project.

Working together we’re creating a campaign that brings the Festival of Museums to life, inspiring audiences and encouraging visits to over 100 events all across Scotland.

Darcie Tanner, our Digital Director shares: “Festival of Museums offered a really engaging brief with huge potential. Aligning digital with the traditional PR strategy will enable Stripe to deliver an effective campaign that will increase engagement and ultimately drive footfall into each of the amazing venues participating in the Festival of Museums 2015. We’re really excited to be working with Museums Galleries Scotland on this year’s Festival and hope to make this its best year yet.”
