Alumna Iman Abouhasan studied museology in Würzburg and heads the children's section of the Grand Egyptian Museum in Cairo, the world's largest archaeological museum. She not only wants to make a visit to the museum possible for every age group, but also to make it particularly appealing and eventful. Intercultural exchange is one of the many keys for her and she has been active in the JMU alumni network for years.

She is going to talk about "Sparking imagination at children's museum".

Dr Nevine Zakaria is an official at the Egyptian Ministry of Tourism and Antiquities. As a Humboldt scholarship holder at the University of Würzburg, she researched German museum culture for 2 years and developed a new strategic vision for Egyptian museums. "Dr. Nevine”, as they say in Egypt, sparkles with enthusiasm when she talks about her plans for exhibitions and museums in her home country – especially when it comes to her heart's desire: making museums accessible to everyone! 

She is going to talk about: "Exploring the Role of Museums in Supporting Human Rights and Advocating for People with Disabilities and Older Adults".
