Tell Your Story

Your story is so important to us

Our mission is to present the Palestinian story and celebrate the rich culture and traditions that Palestinians have to offer. In a US context where palestinians are always associated with violence and conflict, we are seeking to expand that image. Storytelling is a historic and essential part of Palestinian heritage and resilience, and we believe there is power in memory and sharing individual experiences. We invite you to share your story, whether you are living in Palestine or the diaspora as we seek to uplift and explore Palestinian identity, culture and history.

Sharing Your Story gives you an opportunity to participate in the Museum’s development and will become part of the Museum’s collection.

Please be sure your story is clear, accurate and complete. Do not use anyone’s name, voice or, image without their permission. After acceptance, your story will be published on our website and may be presented in future exhibitions or social media unless you tell us to keep your story private. We will not publish your name without your permission.

Submitted Stories including images (pictures, artwork, etc) or recordings or video become the property of the Museum of the Palestinian People. Unless your story is private, the Museum may use them for any purpose including publishing on our website, exhibits, social media or marketing.

The Museum very much appreciates Your Story.  We reserve the right to verify your story, edit your story prior to publication or not publish your story at our sole discretion.
