History+Art = Peace 2016 (H.A.P.)
WWII happened over 7 decades ago but the atrocities and horrific events that the Asia-Pacific region and Canada suffered are still largely untold. To commemorate the 71st anniversary of the end of WWII, ALPHA is hosting the second annual H.A.P. to increase cross cultural and co-historical understandings. Through the medium of art, ALPHA hopes to renew the spirit of peace and provide people with a better understanding of history and humanity. Across U-hub is partnering with ALPHA to encourage youth to learn from the past and work for peace and social justice through understanding WWII in Asia.
