The Iraqi and American Reconciliation Project (IARP) promotes reconciliation between the people of the United States and Iraq in response to the devastation affecting Iraqi families, society, and culture. IARP recognizes the common humanity of the people of Iraq and the people of the United States. Working with the Muslim Peacemaker Teams (MPT) in Iraq, IARP creates bridges of communication, understanding and support between Americans and Iraqis that lead to tangible acts for rebuilding a country devastated by years of war, sanctions, more war, and occupation.
This activity is funded, in part, by appropriations from the Minnesota State Legislature with money from the State’s general fund, and its arts and cultural heritage fund that was created by a vote of the people of Minnesota on November 4, 2008. This exhibition is a part of Intermedia Arts’ Catalyst Series.
