At the British Museum
During her time on the International Training Programme in 2012, Hind was based in the Middle East Department and her partner placement was spent at Lincoln Museum and Nottingham University Museum.

In 2012 an element of the programme was a series of presentations, in which groups of participants presented a 10-minute illustrated talk, prompted by the task to consider a new display at the British Museum. Hind’s exhibition project proposal was entitled Footprints.
