During the past few months, HoASA has made several claims to preserve local heritage sites which make up a huge part of Malta’s history. As a university student organisation, HoASA shares the same concerns as the non-governmental organisation Flimkien Għal Ambjent Aħjar (FAA) and have collaborated to organise a symposium which was held on Wednesday, 8th March 2017.
HoASA is the representative of the History of Art and Fine Arts students within the University of Malta. As many know, this year the organisation chose to embark on the mission of raising awareness about our cultural heritage.
It is common knowledge that history is the study of the past, containing the rise and fall of nations, in addition to the tremendous transitions and revolutions which changed the course of humankind. It is a dialogue between the present and the past, for history is a continuous journey through time with decisive occurrences including the greatness and, ultimately, the decline of the Roman Empire; the Crusades; and World War II.
