An Update from Claire: Summer Programme 2018

Written by Claire Messenger, International Training Programme Manager

This year’s ITP summer programme will take place from Saturday 30 June to Saturday 11 August.  Fellows 2018 will join us to broaden their understanding of the UK museum sector by being introduced to a wide range of topics with courses offering a mix of creative workshops and hands-on-sessions, presentations and ‘behind the scenes’ tours.

Getting ‘hands on’

Following on from our 2017 cohort’s extremely useful evaluation and report comments, this summer we will be introducing the following:

And of course we’ll be doing our best to make sure the sun shines for the entire 6 weeks!!

As usual fellows will spend ten days of the programme at a UK Partner institution, between Monday 23 July to Wednesday 1 August, and we have the pleasure this year of welcoming National Museums Northern Ireland to the ITP ‘family’.

Finally, we are delighted to announce that the new countries joining our global network will be Azerbaijan, Nepal, Philippines, Rwanda and Syria.  And, after some years since their last participation in the summer programme, we will be welcoming back Kurdistan, Oman, Mexico and Uganda.

Once we have everyone’s biographies and the programme for 2018, we’ll be sure to share them with you all.
