At the British Museum

During her time on the International Training Programme, Nosiba was based in the Department of Egypt and Sudan and her partner placement was spent at Manchester Art Gallery, Manchester Museum and Whitworth Art Gallery.

In 2021 participants were asked to plan and propose a temporary exhibition on the theme of journeys, drawing on their existing museum experience and the skills learnt during the programme.  Nosiba worked with Aleksandra Chevreska (North Macedonia) and Durakhshona Boboeva (Tajikistan) on her Object in focus project. Their exhibition proposal was titled Beyond Belief: journey of the rain animals.

Nosiba’s place on the International Training Programme was generously supported by The John S Cohen Foundation.
