The ATHAR program and ICCROM courses have taught me a lot regarding the preservation of monuments, especially mosaics. I participated in the course held in TYRE / LEBANON, and the result was that I was able to work in the maintenance of mosaics with greater confidence, thanks to the information and practical experience gained from these courses.

During the course on Conservation and Management of Cultural Heritage: Sites and Museum Collections, we learned some new methods of management and planning for cultural heritage which can help us a lot in Sudan. Knowing more information about the digital documentation of heritage and about the international practices for protection and conservation of heritage sites has added a unique value to our knowledge, which, in turn, is the future of our heritage.

ATHAR is a program which aims at encouraging Arab professionals to understand the best methodologies to protect and manage cultural heritage . It helps us diagnose problems, propose solutions and think more deeply about the future of heritage in the Arab region. Personally, the regional course on ‘Conservation and Management of Cultural Heritage: Sites and Museum Collections’ was an extraordinary experience which allowed me to fill gaps in my training in conservation and management of cultural heritage.
