The Winner

Crab Museum – Creating a Radical and Unhinged Social Media Strategy for a Very Real Museum

Crab Museums’ social presence uses humour and memes about crabs to address complex issues such as environmental degradation, biodiversity loss, and climate change. Their tongue-in-cheek approach has increased engagement and offered opportunities for honest discussion of the state of the planet, whilst creating a rare, personal relationship between online followers and the physical museum.
