As part of the multi-year agreement signed in 2009 between the Musée du Louvre and the National Heritage Institute (Tunisia), an on-site training initiative has been ongoing at the National Bardo Museum since 2011.

A team from the Musée du Louvre, now consisting of a conservation expert and a project manager, leads this hands-on training initiative in conjunction with the curator of the Bardo. It instructs young Tunisians in techniques of conserving and displaying the collection with a view to sharing high-level skills. In this way the team has conserved part of the Bardo’s collection of ancient Roman statues and has orchestrated the exhibition design of the “Carthage room”, which opened in fall 2015. The Musée du Louvre and the National Heritage Institute (Tunisia) enjoyed the support of the Union Bancaire pour le Commerce et l’Industrie (UBCI) and of Total Tunisie for the refurbishment of this room.


Cairo Museums
In response to a request from the new National Museum of Egyptian Civilization (NMEC) in Cairo, Louvre Expertise has organized training sessions on artwork technical management and preventive conservation for around twenty curatorial staff from Cairo museums (NMEC, Egyptian Museum, Museum of Islamic Art, Coptic Museum, and Grand Egyptian Museum).

The aim was to prepare for exhibition installation and to organize the storage facilities within the new National Museum of Egyptian Civilization for works from other museums and from storehouses of the nation’s archaeological sites.

Two officials from the Musée du Louvre, experts in artwork technical management and preventive conservation, designed a customized training program in an operational approach focused on the problems facing Egyptian curators. 

The training was conducted in English over a five-day period in the NMEC premises.


La Boverie, Liège
The city of Liège called on the Musée du Louvre as part of its program of renovation and extension of its new arts center, La Boverie, led by Rudy Ricciotti.

For a three-year period (until 2018) a team from the Louvre will provide art consulting services in the organization of three international exhibitions, including the new museum’s own inaugural exhibition in spring 2016.

In conjunction with the people in Liège, the Louvre’s advisers work to develop the exhibitions’ concept, oversee their design and layout, and provide scientific supervision for the catalogue. 

Coaching in the areas of museum interpretation and art education is also planned.


Bulgarian Ministry of Culture and French Embassy to Bulgaria, Sofia
As part of the preparation for the exhibition “The Saga of the Thracian Kings” held at the Musée du Louvre in spring 2015, Louvre Expertise, with the support of the French Embassy to Bulgaria, organized a seminar in Sofia on the scientific study of artworks and policies to promote, preserve, and enhance heritage in France and Bulgaria.  

Around twenty French and Bulgarian experts presented their work and discussed their respective practices before a hundred or so representatives from Bulgarian cultural institutions.
