The Arab American National Museum's Public Programming plays a dynamic role in the preservation and celebration of the cultural heritages of all people. We value the arts not only as an aesthetic expression of the human experience, but also as a tool that empowers all people and instills community pride. Through the arts, we hope to build bridges that span racial, cultural and ethnic divisions. With these goals in mind the Museum's Public Programming embraces all cultural art forms.

Included in the Museum's public programming are conferences, multicultural performance series, film festivals, arts collaborations with area ethnic communities, major festivals, children's craft classes, diversity training, seminars, author's readings, book signings and residency projects. These events take place both on and off site. We invite collaborations with area organizations; please call 313.624.0203 for details. 

To find out more, please contact the Education & Public Programming Department at 313-624-0203.
