The Palestinian Museum is dedicated to supporting an open and dynamic Palestinian culture nationally and internationally, and to providing an environment that fosters intellectual and creative ventures, in addition to promoting continuous learning and bolstering national identity. In line with this vision, and in preparation for the launch of its upcoming exhibition, Palestinian Shores (working title), the Museum is working to organise a series of activities and workshops, targeting all sectors of society as part of the Public Engagement Programme.
About Palestinian Shores
As part of its main exhibitions programme, the Palestinian Museum presents Palestinian Shores, a historical exhibition that explores a selection of milestones in modern Palestinian history. The exhibition affirms the manifestation of a Palestinian political history in the land of Palestine prior to the twentieth century, and of solid foundations for a quasi-independent urban, political, social, and cultural entity in historical Palestine preceding European presence in the country. Within three central narratives, across a timeline stretching from the 18th century to the present, the exhibition explores the processes of rural and urban construction and development that instigated historically significant socioeconomic transformations, making the coast both a beacon and target, coveted by various powers.
The Palestinian Museum invites you to submit proposals for a series of activities targeting different sectors of Palestinian society. They may include: Workshops, performances (theatre, music, video, literary readings, etc.), storytelling for young adults, guided field tours, and related publications. The activities will be organised as part of the Public Engagement Programme accompanying the Palestinian Shores exhibition, to be held between June 2021 and April 2022.
