A Brutal (But Fun!) Four Weeks Coming!!!

It's going to be an exciting, and for us quite brutal, four weeks filled with major activities.

This week, on Friday at 6pm, at the Ayala Museum, we will launch our latest children's book, Tahan Na, Tahanan by Maria Isabel Alarilla-Arellano simultaneously with an exhibition of artworks by Don Salubayba.

The following week, on October 8 will then come TEDxDiliman, at Malcolm Theater at the UP College of Law. It's by-invitation only, sorry - so please make sure you've been approved of a slot before you come. We're limited by our license from TED.com to just 100 guests, sorry. But, we are going to livestream the event, and eventually upload all the talks on YouTube, so no worries about missing out on the big ideas!

The two weeks that will follow TEDxDiliman will then filled with a flurry of activities - from the launch of CANVAS Stories (our project with the Global Giving Foundation);

Kulayan - our coloring book; and two other events whose details we're finalizing so more on that later: an artist exchange with Vietnamese artists; and a first one-woman show.

And after that?

We'll launch Rizalpabeto, and then gear up for major major changes to scale up and expand CANVAS in 2012.

Exciting!

I have some books I want to donate. I've visited the link and saw that the donations could be made only via cash. Might want to know if you accept books? And how should I send them? Thanks!

Hi Gian,

Thanks for the offer, but no, we can't accept books simply because we're not really equipped to receive, store and distribute them properly.

Best regards,
