Preparing for the 2009 programme
It’s spring again and time to prepare for a new season of the International Training Programme. This year the BM is happy to welcome 24 visitors from 11 different countries, and I have joined as a new member of staff.
We’re currently finalising your training schedules, which we’ll be emailing to you soon.
Before coming to the BM I had a post as a curator of ethnography, working with a collection consisting mostly of Yoruba objects from Western Africa. I’ve also worked at Visavuori Museum in my home country, Finland.
I have completed MSc in Museum Studies – I also have MPhil in Cuneiform and Near Eastern Archaeology from a few years back.
I’ll be your number 1 contact person while you’re here, but if you have any questions now, don’t hesitate to email me. Here’s a photo so you will know who to look out for! You’ll also be working with Neal Spencer and Claire Messenger, who manage and co-ordinate the programme.
I’m really looking forward to meeting you all!
