Our intentions are :
Using art lectures and intensive workshops to facilitate the transformation of unskilled individuals in rural areas into empowered makers.
Creating and selling unique, almost-zero-waste, compassionate, and story-rich products made by the ingenuity, landscape, and struggles of the Ilonggo barrio / purok
Holding mindful and immersive activities that allow artists and creatives to commune with their purpose in community-building such as our eco-arts camps, eco-crafting workshops, zen playgrounds, rooted tours, and volunteering opportunities
Doing commissioned and collaborative mural art as a platform for conscious expression, advocacy, and social commentary while giving local artists extra income for taking painting gigs as Artivists.
Challenging the single story about ‘the poor’ and suggesting different perspectives through authentic storytelling from the peripheries
We are based in Iloilo, Philippines.
