Preserving Palestinian Identity: Art as Resistance A two day art event

On July 12th and 13th in the heart of D.C., we will gather for a two-day event dedicated to educating and uplifting the voices and stories of the Palestinian people. 

As people from around the world take to the streets for Palestine, the Museum of the Palestinian People seeks to provide a space that renews our connection to each other and educates the public about who we are.

Even as attempts to erase our art, culture, and people continue, we invite you to join us for two days of solidarity in sharing the art of Palestinian resistance and  الصمود (Samud, steadfastness). 
Gather together in community for our two-day event, “Preserving Palestinian Identity: Art as Resistance” on July 12th and 13th in Washington D.C.
