At the British Museum
During his time on the International Training Programme in 2009, Haytham was based in the Department of Middle East and his partner placement was spent at Birmingham Museums Trust.

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.  Haytham’s exhibition proposal project was entitled Venus in 360.
