2020 ITP Newsletter – Out Now!

We are pleased to share with you the seventh edition of the ITP newsletter.

As you know, the ITP newsletter aims to exchange ideas and facilitate dialogue between our fellows across the years and the globe. It also provides a great opportunity to gain some insight into our global network’s current professional projects and programmes.

Our 2020 edition focuses on museum audiences, a topic chosen by our guest editor Mohamed Mokhtar (Egypt, ITP Fellow 2015 and Senior Fellow 2019). 

Here Mohamed tells us more about the inspiration behind his choice of the theme:

‘I’m fascinated by research into museum audiences. It can help us decide the best ways of encouraging visitors and show us how to make people feel that visiting a museum is a great life experience. Museum audiences are also a key concern for my colleagues working in the museum sector in Egypt today because we are heading towards opening one of the most important museums in Egypt, the Grand Egyptian Museum, as well as the new permanent galleries at the National Museum of Egyptian Civilization.’    

We want to send our thanks – and congratulations – to Mohamed for so brilliantly shaping the newsletter’s content and tackling this very important issue.  It was a real pleasure to work with him over the last 12 months.

We’d also like to say a very big ‘thank you’ to all our ITP Fellows whose fascinating and insightful contributions made this issue possible.

We hope you will enjoy reading more from the ITP team and sharing our fellows’ experiences and creative solutions around the issues of engaging with their audiences.
