ITP 2017: Exhibition Proposals

Rebecca Horton, International Training Programme Coordinator

As with previous Summer Programmes fellows were asked to work with their departmental mentors to develop an exhibition proposal. For the first time, this year’s fellows were asked to work in pairs and present their exhibition proposal as partners. This brought a new dynamic to the project as cross-cultural conversations were created and exhibition proposals were informed by different perspectives and professional backgrounds.

The proposals were presented at a reception on the penultimate night of the Summer Programme, attended by Supporters of the programme.
