Ministry of Antiquities


Country: Egypt


Nevine has a PhD in Egyptology and has worked for the Ministry of Antiquities since 2001. She has 16 years’ experience of curatorial works and museological practices and has she participated effectively in developing the exhibitions content of the Grand Egyptian Museum (2004-2015).

When Nevine came on the ITP she worked on the text writing team at the Grand Egyptian Museum. Upon returning to Egypt after the ITP she prepared a training course for Ministry of Antiquities colleagues which was attended by over 138 museum professionals from across Egypt. In 2015 she joined Helwan University as a Lecturer in Museums Studies.

In 2016 she supervised the institutional development plan for the Gayer-Anderson Museum and raised its engagement with the community. She has been exposed to the best practices in the field of museums at UK, USA, German and Indian training programmes. Her main area of interest is access and social inclusion and identifying the barriers of engagement with heritage sites and museums in Egypt.

In 2021 Nevine started her Alexander von Humboldt fellowship in Germany in the field of Cultural Accessibility.

At the British Museum
During her time on the International Training Programme in 2012, Nevine was based in the Department of Egypt and Sudan and her partner placement was spent at Tyne and Wear Archives and Museums, Newcastle.

Nevine’s exhibition project proposal was entitled Nursing Mothers: A Visual Guide from Ancient Egypt.

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