Ghalia Abdelrahman

Sudan National Museum


Country: Sudan

ITP Year: 2010


Ghalia is the Director of the Sudan National Museum in Khartoum.

At the British Museum
During her time on the International Training Programme in 2010, Ghalia was based in the Department of Egypt and Sudan and her partner placement was spent at Bristol Museums, Galleries and Archives.

In 2010 participants were asked to develop a proposal for a small temporary exhibition – based on British Museum objects – on some aspect of their own cultures. Ghalia’s exhibition project proposal, with colleague Abdelrahman Siddig, was entitled The Kushite Period Funeral Practice.

Legacy projects
In October 2018 Ghalia attended the ITP+ Course on Museum Interpretation in Aswan. Fellows and colleagues from Egypt, Sudan and around the world listened to interpretation case studies, participated in project work, sessions on label & panel writing and panel discussions on audience surveys and evaluations. The course was hosted by the Nubian Museum.
