At the British Museum

During her time on the International Training Programme Khine was based in the Department of Asia 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.  Khine worked with Balqees Nakhla (Palestine) on her Object in focus project. Their exhibition proposal was titled Turkmen Textile Journeys: between identity and history.

Khine’s place on the International Training Programme was generously supported by the Charles Wallace Burma Trust.
