ITP 2016- Exhibition Proposals

Congratulations to all of the 2016 fellows who worked hard on their exhibition proposals at the British Museum this summer.

Proposals were presented on the penultimate night of the ITP Summer Programme. It was a wonderful evening, attended by British Museum staff, UK partner staff and sponsors, and was enjoyed by all.
