This project, directly funded by the Marie-Louise von Motesiczky Charitable Trust, was part of our ITP Collaborative Awards, projects which aim to strengthen the network with the British Museum’s International Training Programme by encouraging ITP alumni to network and engage. This legacy project was awarded to Abiti through an open, competitive process in 2017 and the UK programme partner on the project was John Giblin, Keeper of the Department of World Cultures at National Museums Scotland and former Head of the Africa section at the British Museum.

We premiered the film live in our Facebook Group, where members could watch the film together live, and share comments and reactions. Thank you to all the ITP fellows who watched the film along with us, who gave positive feedback and shared their congratulations with Abiti for his project.

Thank you to Abiti Adebo Nelson, Curator and Senior Conservator, Uganda National Museum (Uganda, ITP Fellow 2013) and John Giblin, Keeper of the Department of World Cultures at National Museums Scotland for taking the time to create this In Conversation film.

This is the first entry to our In Conversation film series. This series features two participants in each film, in conversation about a subject they have in common or wish to talk about. This could be two ITP fellows, an ITP fellow and a British Museum/UK partner or programme partner colleague. If you would like to be involved in a future In Conversation, please see this blog for more information.
