We are delighted to be able to share the ITP Annual Report 2019 with you all.

The report talks about the summer programme and what was new for 2019, and gives the opportunity for our departmental and UK partner museum colleagues to talk about their programmes. It also covers some of the other highlights of the ITP year with a focus on our legacy projects and our plans for the future.

A three-day ITP+ course on museums and education was held in March 2019 at Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj Vastu Sangrahalaya (CSMVS)

I’d like to thank everyone who contributed to the ITP in 2019 and who wrote for the report – it is lovely to have all your voices included and makes the report a really interesting read.  I’d also like to thank our colleagues in Photography and Imaging for the amazing photographs they have taken over the past year that make the report look so incredible and our Marketing Department for their hard work – and patience – putting the report together.

While the report marks the end of 2019, we are now busy selecting countries, institutions and fellows for the summer programme 2020 – our 15th!!

Six ITP fellows joined us in Brighton at the Museums Associations conference in October 2019

This month, the ITP team is working on the programme for the summer and we will be meeting our UK partner museum colleagues – at the University of Nottingham Museum – to talk about plans for the coming year.

Meanwhile, we hope you will keep up to date with us in 2020 via the blog, Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and the ITP Newsletter, and please do let us know if you have something you’d like to share with the ITP network. We’d love to hear from you.

Happy reading!!!

Claire, Anna and George
