In celebration of the National Arts Month this February, with the theme “Sining ng Pag-asa,” a Nabunturan Art Fair and Exhibit kicked off yesterday, February 21, 2022 at Cinematheque Centre, showcasing amazing artworks from our young local artists in the municipality.
       In her message, Mayor Chelita C. Amatong showed her support and believes that this activity is an inspiring platform in helping our artists to showcase their talents amidst the pandemic.
       On one hand, installation art is featured in the Municipal Grounds entitled Pukot sa Pangandoy by Richard Arellano.
        This installation art is anchored on the study ² conducted by The Dream Project which stated that 8 out 10 Filipino teenagers don’t have dreams and, in the study, they have shared that there are 5 reasons why, one of which is the lack of conversation.
         Pukot sa Pangandoy aims to become the platform for that conversation of dreams and aspirations.
Everyone is enjoined to get their photo taken and have their dreams and aspiration written on a ribbon. This could be tied to the left and right panels of the installation.
        However, if you can’t come, you may fill out this link: where it will ask your name, location, age, and dreams. Submitted entries will be written in a ribbon and will be included in the installation.
        We extend our heartfelt THANK YOU to all our artists in the municipality who have been part of this momentous celebration.
Happy Arts Month, Nabunturanons ug Mabuhay ang Manlilikhang Pilipino!
