Marwa Salem Eid

The Egyptian Museum in Cairo


Country: Egypt

ITP Year: 2014


Marwa is a Curator in the Education Department of the Egyptian Museum in Cairo. She is especially interested in educational museums, and one of her major ambitions is to create catalogues for children, to help them during their visit to the Egyptian museum. She is passionate about learning new ways to be active with children in the museum environment, as well as developing new and creative programmes for disabled children.

Marwa is studying for a master’s degree in Heritage Science, Museum Management.

At the British Museum

During her time on the International Training Programme in 2014, Marwa was based in the Department of Egypt and Sudan and her partner placement was spent at Tyne and Wear Archives and Museums, Newcastle.

In 2014 participants were asked to prepare a project outlining an exhibition proposal based on the Asahi Shimbun Displays – a temporary exhibition in Room 3 at the British Museum. Marwa’s exhibition project proposal was entitled Story of the Hieroglyphic Letters.

Marwa’s place on the programme was generously supported by the Marie-Louise von Motesiczky Charitable Trust.
