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 Museums’ 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.
