We are a community-based creative social enterprise with the aim of creating and sustaining immersive collaborations between marginalized communities and impact-inspired artists.
Our intentions are :
Using our talents and artistic approaches to facilitate the transformation of unskilled rural people into empowered makers and creatives through our eco-design and self-development workshops
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
Initiating art events that showcase art with social impact, spiritual enrichment, and relatable language – opening it up to the public – upholding the spirit of education, awareness, and inclusion
Challenging the single story about ‘the poor’ and suggesting different perspectives through authentic storytelling from the peripheries
We are based in Iloilo, Philippines.
