At the British Museum
During the International Training Programme in 2015, Amal was based in the Department of Egypt and Sudan. Her UK Partner museum was the Ashmolean Museum of Art and Archaeology, Oxford.

In 2015 each participant was asked to plan and propose a temporary exhibition based on the physical space and concept of the Asahi Shimbun Displays in Room 3 at the British Museum.  Amal’s exhibition project proposal was entitled The Potters’ Craft: Handmade Ceramics from Ancient Sudan.

Amal’s place on the International Training Programme was generously supported by Lady Keswick.
