Exhibition Proposal Project

One of the elements of the International Training Programme is for the participants to develop an idea for a new display of their own culture at the British Museum. 

They are asked to propose a small temporary exhibition based on objects from their own culture at the British Museum.  This year’s participants presented their projects in a seminar on Thursday July 29.  The proposals were wide-ranging and creative, and integrated their specialist knowledge with techniques and ideas developed throughout the programme.
