A Mobile Education Hub for Peace and Human Dignity

Mobile Museum of Tolerance, Chicago

The highly visible Mobile Museum of Tolerance (MMOT) serves as the Simon Wiesenthal Center Illinois’ flagship educational initiative and travels all across the state. The MMOT will be a mobile extension of the center’s work to confront anti-Semitism, hate and terrorism, while promoting human rights and dignity through education.

The MMOT is equipped with high-tech immersive activities, “theater” seating, and interactive technologies to provide a a world class learning experience for students of all ages from any community in the state. The project designed by our Yazdani Studio has key goals including:

  • Moving students from dialogue to action and helping them recognize their own personal responsibility in making a positive difference in the world
  • Providing transformative educational components and experiences for educators, parents and students
  • Delivering awareness, knowledge and skills that empower, inspire and motivate people to advance meaningful strategic visions, individually and collectively
  • Equipping communities with tools, communications, ongoing resources, connections and support for a community of caring and ethical engagement
  • Instilling excitement and optimism that change does happen in the world, and each of us can foster the solution we are seeking

Our Yazdani team has a deep history with the Simon Wiesenthal Center including interactive gardens and museum exhibits in Jerusalem and the Anne Frank exhibit in Los Angeles.
