We are proud and happy to begin 2021 by launching our newest initiative – The Hiroshima Peace and Resilience Project that we hope will widely impact communities and classrooms around the world in the absence of our in-person programs.We are excited to share our work with the UME community at an advance showing of this interactive virtual tour on Feb 4, 2021 at 7 PM EST.Please Register by clicking HEREFrom the Hiroshima Peace and Resilience Project Tour
The HPRP pairs live online presenters with CG renderings, AI colorized photos, virtual simulations, rare historical film footage, interactive polls and introspective activities to tell the extraordinary story of Hiroshima before, during and after the atomic bombing.
The story of the atomic bombing of Hiroshima is of tragedy, catastrophe and loss. However, it is also one of hope, optimism and moving forward. The HPRP presents these different but surprisingly complementary narratives in order for participants to gain new understanding of this pivotal event. In doing so, the HPRP inspires participants to think deeply about the concept of resilience and its role in their lives.
The HPRP is implemented in partnership with Peace Culture Village.
We hope that this new dimension of our work will enable us to impact communities and classrooms around the world with our message of peace and resiliency during this difficult time. We hope to see you on Feb 4!
