Art Chat Monthly (#ACM) launches this October

October 11th, 2011

What: Art Chat Monthly (#ACM) is a Twitter chat with a new art topic each month.
When: Thursday 13 October 11:00 – 12:30 EST
Where: On Twitter – Follow @AGOToronto for more information or search for the hashtag #ACM
Who: @AGOToronto and you! Art Chat Monthly (#ACM) is for everyone – from other galleries and museums on Twitter to arts professionals to artists to anyone interested in learning more and meeting other passionate art fans.
Why: It’s a great, free way of meeting art fans from across the world.
How: Starting at 11am we’ll be asking a series of questions around the month’s topic for you to answer, debate and discuss.

From 11am until 12.30pm EST on Thursday 13 October the chat host (us!) will be tweeting a question every 10 minutes for 90 minutes, using the hastag #ACM. Anyone can respond, also using the #ACM hashtag. What is a hashtag?

For example, we would tweet:

Q1 What is your favourite art gallery? #ACM

And you could tweet back:

A1 The Art Gallery of Ontario! #ACM

Simple! So what are we going to be talking about this month?

Our topic for the first ever Art Chat Monthly (#ACM) is photography. We’re not going to reveal our questions just yet, but we promise they’ll be thought-provoking! We were inspired by the two great photography exhibitions we’ve got going on in the Gallery right now:

Songs of the Future: Canadian Industrial Photographs, 1858 to Today


The Grange Prize 2011

One lucky tweep who takes part will win one nights accommodation at an awarding winning hotel courtesy of Starwood Hotel & Resorts and a pair of tickets to visit the Art Gallery of Ontario in Toronto!

We hope that you’ll help spread the word and join us for this great online event. For more information about Art Chat Monthly please email


See you on Twitter, Thursday 13 October 11:00 – 12:30 EST
