PMDA at a Glance
Being the Palestinian Museum’s signature project, the Digital Archive (PMDA) illuminates over 200 years of the Palestinian narrative for posterity and those interested in Palestinian history wherever they happen to be with a collection nearing 70,000 endangered objects ranging from photographs and documents to artworks and posters.
A people’s archive through and through, PMDA scouts, researches, and digitises imperilled Palestinian archives and sets them down for the public eye and research communities. The PMDA collection gives voice to the Palestinian narrative as fleshed out in people and organisations’ records and memorabilia where the collective history and individual experience thread through and wrap around each other.
