ITP Conference Grant report from Namrata Sarmah (India, ITP 2018)

Written by Claire Messenger, Manager, International Training Programme

In February we announced that our first ITP Conference Grant of 2023 had been awarded to Namrata Sarmah (India, ITP 2018).

Namrata used her support grant to travel to Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj Vastu Sangrahalaya  (CSMVS), Mumbai, India from 8 March – 10 March 2023 for a workshop which focused on Museum Education and Outreach.

The two-day conference included presentations by invited educators and discussion forums on themes that focused on the future of museum outreach in a digitally engaged world. It also explored how museums in India can work collaboratively towards launching a museum educators’ forum that can exchange ideas and initiatives.

Namrata’s report HERE is a wonderful journey through her three days in Mumbai and looks at the contents and outcomes of the workshop.  And I know you’ll be delighted to see some familiar names and faces from our ITP global network in India who were also part of this exciting project!

The ITP is delighted to have helped Namrata make the most of this opportunity and to be sharing her lovely report with our wider network of fellows, friends, partners and supporters.
