Washington, DC—May 9th, 2017—The Museum of The Palestinian People (www.mpp-dc.org).

Museum of The Palestinian People, a 501 C (3) non-profit organization, announced today the launch of its website and the beginning of it’s development campaign.

The Museum gathers, preserves and shares the richness of Palestinian historic and contemporary art, history, culture and stories. The Museum will be a welcoming space for education, reflection and conversation where visitors – virtual or in person – explore the creativity, culture, history and resilience of the Palestinian people, and their aspirations under occupation and exile. The space which will be based in Washington DC, will serve as a vibrant and popular destination where artists, scholars, academics, patrons and the global community will engage, enrich and honor all aspects of Palestinian, culture, history and artistic expression.

The plan for the Museum includes space for permanent and temporary exhibits plus study, reflection, education and community events. New capabilities will be added to the website as funding allows including creative works utilizing virtual and augmented reality and streaming video.

The Museum concept evolved from the Nakba Museum Project a series of traveling exhibits staged in over 30 communities around the country.

“Our vision for the Museum is to serve as the leading center for the celebration of Palestinian culture. We are excited to embark on this journey and we are looking forward to collaborating with stakeholders, partners and supporters in the United States, Palestine and around the world”, said Bshara Nassar, Founding Director.
