Rosalie Hans graduated from UCU in 2008. Her MA in Museum Studies at UCL in London included an internship at the Royal Pharmaceutical Society of Great Britain, working on collections and documentation. Her thesis was about – plans for – the National History Museum of the Netherlands. After finishing her MA, she undertook an eight month internship with UNESCO at MUSART – the Museu Nacional de Arte in Maputo, Mozambique, from October 2009 to June 2010. Here she catalogued the collection of modern art, and worked together with children’s art programmes in the museum. After returning to the Netherlands, she worked for the Rabobank Art Deaprtment in Utrecht for three months. She is appointed manager for the Project 'Reanimating Cultural Heritage' at the National Museum of Sierra Leone, starting in March 2011.

In 2011 I went to Sierra Leone to digitise the entire collection of the Sierra Leone National Museum as part of the project ‘Reanimating Cultural Heritage’. The collection can now be found online at: sierraleoneheritage.org. In 2012 I worked at the CIE – Centre for International Heritage Activities on various projects in South Africa, Afghanistan and Australia. Currently working as a freelancer, I am hoping to find a more permanent job in the museum world in the near future.
