"I have been working in this field for over 15 years. Recently I decided to shift my practice and leave my role as founding Director of the the MMAG Foundation, in which I was responsible for setting up the foundations exhibitions, residency and learning programs. I am currently pursuing a freelance career as a curator and I hope that through CIMAM, I will remain connected to like minded individuals and continue to expand my professional network, while remaining informed about relevant information and engaging with fast evolving conversations happening in the field of museology and the cultural sector".

Noura Al Khasawneh, Independent Curator and Co-Founder of Spring Sessions, Amman, Jordan.

In 2014 Noura co-founded Spring Sessions, an annual three-month art residency programme in Amman with a clear goal in mind: to address the absence of critical and experiential art education in Jordan. The programme brings together international artists, to host participatory workshops and collaborative sessions with young and emerging artists from across the globe.
