Ensuring that all histories – especially the most marginalized – are preserved and shared is a priority for Sites of Conscience around the globe. To support this, in partnership with our Asian and Pacific Sites of Conscience Network, we are pleased to launch “Shared Journeys,” a virtual exhibit that showcases the hidden, lost, or sidelined histories of the Asian region. The project is a collaboration between 12 Sites of Conscience in the region and is curated by Radhika Hettiarachchi.

As part of this launch, we are also hosting a Shared Journeys Webinar Series to highlight individual contexts while also shining a light on regional perspectives through history and advocacy. The sessions are listed below. Any questions can be directed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
