The National Museum of Art


Country: Mozambique

ITP Year: 2009


Gilda is currently Officer in the Department of Digitsation and Research at the National Museum of Art in Mozambique.

In 2016, Gilda participated in an exhibition at the National Museum of Art showcasing the nationwide work of Mozambican artists. The large-scale national exhibition was put together in partnership with the Regional Museum of Inhambane, the Ethnology Museum of Nampula, and the Island Museum of Mozambique and is part of a wider collaboration on a series of projects including collections management, research and restoration.

At the British Museum
During her time on the International Training Programme in 2009, Gilda was based in the Department of Africa, Oceania, and the Americas and her partner placement was spent at Lincoln Museum.

An element of the programme was a morning of presentations, in which groups of participants presented a 10-minute illustrated talk, prompted by the task to consider a new display of the fellows’ cultures at the British Museum.  Gilda’s exhibition proposal, with colleague Antonio Ntimbanga, was entitled The Makonde Mask.

Legacy Projects
In March 2010 Gilda attended the Cairo Conference Towards a global network where she presented a paper on what she had gained, both professionally and personally, from attending the ITP and her career development since the programme.

In November 2015 Gilda attended the ITP Mumbai Workshop Creating Museums of World Stories. The workshop was held at CSMVS Mumbai, India and was attended by many ITP fellows from different years and countries, UK partners and British Museum colleagues.
