At the British Museum

During her time on the International Training Programme Diana was based in the Department of Egypt and Sudan and spent her partner placement at Lincoln Museum and Nottingham University Museum.

In 2019 participants were asked to plan and propose a temporary exhibition around an object from the Museum’s collection working within the theme of journeys.  Diana worked with Aprille Tijam (Philippines) on her Object in focus project. Her exhibition proposal was titled Life After Death: treasures from the Royal Tombs of Ur.

Diana’s place on the International Training Programme was generously supported by the Barakat Trust.
