Omar Abdalla

Malindi Museum


Country: Kenya

ITP Year: 2010


Omar currently works as Administrator at the Malindi Museum. In 2016, Omar participated in training on exhibitions with the British Museum Africa Programme.

At the British Museum
During his time on the International Training Programme in 2010, Omar was based in the Department of Africa, Oceania, and the Americas and his partner placement was spent at The Collection – Art and Archaeology in Lincolnshire.

In 2010 participants were asked to develop a proposal for a small temporary exhibition – based on British Museum objects – on some aspect of their own cultures.  Omar’s exhibition project proposal was entitled Let Us Value Our Cultures.

Omar’s participation on the International Training Programme was generously supported by the Altajir Trust.

Legacy Projects
In November 2015 Omar attended the ITP Mumbai Workshop Creating Museums of World Stories. The workshop was held at CSMVS and was attended by many ITP fellows from different years and countries, UK partners and British Museum Colleagues.
