At the British Museum
During his time on the International Training Programme in 2009, Ayman was based in the Department of Egypt and Sudan and his partner placement was spent at National Museum Wales.

Ayman’s exhibition project proposal was entitled Sudanese Culture.

Ayman returned to the Museum in 2018 to work on the Department of Egypt and Sudan’s Circulating Artefacts project.
