Neighborhood Museum welcomes recently arrived refugee families through artwork and art-making and centers a multiplicity of cultural practices; artwork becomes a way to learn about your new home and a way to share where you have come from. Each participant is greeted and oriented to the museum and its resources in their home language and provided a free family membership to Carnegie Museums of Pittsburgh.
Participants join us through our partnership with the following community refugee resettlement agencies; Bethany Christian Resettlement Services, JFCS (Jewish Family and Community Services), AJAPO (Acculturation for Justice, Action and Peace Organization), Hello Neighbor, Latino Community Center, Catholic Charities of Pittsburgh, and Casa San Jose.
Translation and interpretation services, including downloadable museum guides translated in an array of languages, are provided by Global Wordsmiths.
