At the British Museum
During her time on the International Training Programme in 2009, Jing was based in the Department of Asia and her partner placement was spent at Tyne and Wear Archives and Museums in Newcastle.

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.  Jing’s exhibition proposal, with colleague Zhan Wang, was entitled Tea Culture in the Song Dynasty.

Jing’s participation on the International Training Programme was generously supported by the National Museum of China

Legacy projects
In March 2010 Zhan 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.
