At the British Museum
During his time on the International Training Programme in 2009, Abdülmecit was based in the Department of Greece and Rome and his partner placement was spent at Glasgow Museums.

In 2009 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.  Abdülmecit’s exhibition project proposal, with colleague Fatma Dogruer (Turkey), was entitled The Nereid Monument – A New Display.
