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 History Comes Alive! Individual Passes are also available.
