ITP Year: 2010
Qahtan currently works as Director of the Basrah Museum of Antiquities and Heritage.
At the British Museum
During his time on the International Training Programme in 2010, Qahtan was based in the Department of Middle East and his partner placement was spent at The Collection – Art and Archaeology in Lincolnshire.
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. Qahtan’s exhibition project proposal was entitled Lyre of Ur.
Qahtan’s participation on the International Training Programme was generously supported by Mark & Liza Loveday.
