We started this blog, back in November 12, 2006, with this very activity in mind. Tomorrow, exactly 31 months to the day, on Independence Day - June 12, 2009, we will have delivered on this goal.
The Looking for Juan Outdoor Banner Exhibit opens tomorrow (Independence Day) at 4pm at the UP College of Law with a free mini-concert by Peryodiko. The show will remain on view until July 11, 2009 around the University of the Philippines’ Academic Oval in Diliman, Quezon City.
At the end of its run, the banners will be converted into tote bags by two women’s communities in Antipolo and Laguna, and sold as original works of functional art. Proceeds from the sale will benefit PADYAK - a UP Mountaineers-led movement to promote cycling and environmentalism as healthy lifestyles, as well as other CANVAS efforts to promote greater awareness and appreciation for Philippine art, culture and the environment.
The Looking for Juan Outdoor Banner Project was made possible in part by generous support from The Pag-IBIG Fund.
