The International Training Programe team are delighted to announce that Eileen Ondusye Musundi, Curator, The Nairobi Gallery in Kenya and Exhibitions Designer, National Museums Kenya, will be joining us this summer on the past-participant training opportunity 2013.
Eileen first came to the British Museum on the ITP 2008 when she was based in the Department of Africa, Oceania and the Amercias with Julie Hudson and Katherine Coleman. For her UK Partner placement she went to Cardiff and was hosted at Amgueddfa Cymru – National Museum Wales by Melanie Youngs. Eileen also took part in the Cairo Conference in 2010 and wrote an insightful essay for the ITP book.
In the years following the ITP, Eileen has helped organise permanent, temporary and touring exhibitions for National Museum Kenya and she is now curator in charge of The Nairobi Gallery.
We are delighted to welcome Eileen back this year and hope this will become an annual opportunity for a past-participant to further their training and to re-engage with staff at the British Museum and colleagues and friends around the UK.
