At the British Museum

During his time on the International Training Programme Abdulrahman was based in the Department of Egypt and Sudan and spent his partner placement at Norfolk Museums Service.

In 2019 participants were asked to plan and propose a temporary exhibition around an object from the Museum’s collection working within the theme of journeys.  Abdulrahman worked with Buket Babatas Aydin (Turkey) and Nyaz Azeez Awmar (Kurdistan) on his Object in focus project. Their exhibition proposal was titled Journey Towards Belief.
