ITP 2011: Exhibition Proposal Project

The participants were asked to develop a proposal for a small temporary exhibition for a space similar to Room 3 at the British Museum. Using knowledge of their own cultures and recent experiences from the International Training Programme, at the British Museum and other UK Museums, the participants presented an exhibition concept inspired by British Museum objects.  You can view the presentations by clicking on the titles below.
