Calling all parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles and godparents in Manila, Philippines this weekend! There is something culturally exciting for the whole family —
Let’s take the kids to Nayong Pilipino at a satellite facility in Rizal Park. As a tourism facility, Nayong Pilipino showcases various aspects of Philippines’ heritage, people and culture. It fuels the passion of the next wave of Filipino artists.
Parkfest PH, in partnership with Common Room and Type-Kita, was envisioned to be an event that will reinvigorate and revitalize Nayong Pilipino as a place that showcases the modern Filipino culture, beauty, traditions and the many passions, quirks, talent, creative diversity and ingenuity of its people.
The challenge is to re-establish Nayong Pilipino and make it relevant to the youth and tourists of today who are always looking for something new and exciting. The big idea is to make Nayong Pilipino park a must-see destination that is bursting with modern Filipino talent.
Parkfest PH is a week-long event where many of today’s beloved Filipino artists will be creating their art installations from May 23-27.
Featured artists include Abbey Sy, Alessa Lanot, Anina Rubio, Ella Lama, June Digan, Mabby Camacho, Camy Cabral, Patrick Cabral, John Ed De Vera, Geli Balcruz, Jelvin Base, Carl Chua, Iori Espiritu, Ang Ilustrador ng Kabataan, Doodle Art Enthusiasts, ARTitas of Manila, Maikala Concepts. The launch of these art installations will be on May 28-29, along with a pop-up arts and crafts fair, food, and several talented young performers. It will be one exciting weekend that just screams “SOBRANG GALING TALAGA NG MGA PINOY!”
Here are the scheduled workshops for May 28 and May 29:
