Please vote…The Freedom Memorial Museum Design Competition

(Source: The Freedom Memorial Museum is the flagship project of the Human Rights Violations Victims’ Memorial Commission mandated by Republic Act 10368 to build a memorial that shall stand as a monument to the heroism of human rights violations victims during martial rule in the Philippines from 1972 to 1986.

Upon completion, the Museum shall serve as an information portal to a moment in history where state violence and oppression spurred the growth of a widespread resistance from all corners of the nation. It shall revisit a period of tyranny that bred reformists, revolutionaries and freedom-fighters from among farmers and professionals, workers and academics, students and religious activists. It aims to build an experiential tapestry of lives, ideals, courage and determination of the victims and, in the end, the heroes of freedom.

The Museum shall house memorabilia, artifacts, educational materials, audiovisual content aimed to immortalize the triumphs and sacrifices, the blood, sweat and tears of Filipinos and allies in the struggle for freedom, democracy and human rights.

It shall be a lasting symbol of the long-fought battle against authoritarian rule that culminated in the globally-acclaimed EDSA People Power revolt in 1986.

The Museum shall rise on an area inside the University of the Philippines campus located along C.P. Garcia Ave. adjacent to the College of Fine Arts.
