Legacies of War uses art, culture, education, and community organizing around events (virtually and in person) to bring people together and create healing and transformation out of the wreckage of war. Throughout the year, we engage audiences in panel discussions, creative convening, and programming centered around history, healing, and hope.
It is a critical and emotional year here at Legacies.
2023 marks the 50th year since the last American bombs were dropped on Laos. After five long decades, the people, animals and land of Laos still suffer from the threat of UXO as only 1% of the contaminants have been cleared. With statistics like these, it seems that the plight of the people of Laos is forgotten.
Let's hit the road!
