Where’s My Playing Favourite?

20 Aug

You may be wondering where all our new Playing Favourites are, especially if you have recently participated and would like to see your entry. As you may know, MIA is currently running a project called Playing Favourites, where we ask visitors what their favourite pieces in our collection are and why. It’s been an absolutely amazing success since we began in June.

Originally, Playing Favourites was intended to be a project for the duration of National Aboriginal History Month (June) – however, we were so impressed with the responses and so enjoyed getting to know our visitors better that we’ve decided to make this a permanent part of MIA’s programming. We couldn’t be happier that so many people have responded and shared with us, and we are excited to continue hearing your stories.

To officially instate Playing Favourites as a permanent feature, it now has its own dedicated blog that we maintain. To see every entry (including those that were done recently), please see: http://playingfavouritesatmia.wordpress.com/

The Playing Favourites on this blog are being slowly transferred over to the new blog and will eventually only exist there. We will periodically showcase particular entries on this blog, but in the future, all Playing Favourites will be on their dedicated blog.

Thank you again to everyone who has shared their favourite works with us – we can’t wait to see more of them.
