Five months after quarantine started, Ayala Museum launches Ayala Museum Virtual—officially continuing the museum’s commitment in bringing Philippine art and culture to the virtual space.

Ayala Museum Virtual marks a new phase in the virtual programming of Ayala Museum and Filipinas Heritage Library, which include much-awaited museum programs History Comes Alive! with Prof. Ambeth Ocampo and Rush Hour Concerts with the Manila Symphony Orchestra online for the first time ever, as well as new programs like Muni-Muni Stories, a podcast by the Filipinas Heritage Library on Original Pilipino Music.

Kicking off this slate of new virtual programs is History Comes Alive! With Professor Ambeth Ocampo, a lecture series that breaks down Philippine history for a contemporary audience. Now on its 10th year, History Comes Alive! is taking on its biggest stage yet: online.

Happening on September 18 and October 2, this year’s lectures take on two topics that have defined the year 2020: Pandemics and Fake News. The access rate for one (1) lecture is P1000 and P700 for teachers & students.

History Comes Alive!, as well as the upcoming Rush Hour Online Concert, is part of a fundraising drive to help bridge the digital divide among students called “Get Access, Give Access”. Proceeds of the fundraiser will go to Ayala Foundation’s Student Online Access Program that gives students online connectivity for the school year.

For a donation of P2700, an Ayala Museum’s Virtual pass will get you access to two (2) HCA lectures and one (1) Rush Hour Concert and give online access to students when they need it most.

Virtual Passes can be availed at http://bit.ly/AMVirtualEvents2020. History Comes Alive! Individual Passes are also available.

To stay up to date with Ayala Museum Virtual, follow Ayala Museum on its social media channels or visit the museum’s website at www.ayalamuseum.org. For event inquiries, email virtualevents@ayalamuseum.org.
