The Weight of Words Exhibit at the CCP
Do you know how much power your words hold? Through the upcoming exhibit The Weight of Words: An Alphabet of Human Rights, presented by the Cultural Center of the Philippines (CCP) and non-profit arts and culture organization CANVAS, a letter or two may change the way you view human rights.
The exhibit will be held from November 24 until January 21, 2018, at Pasilyo Guillermo Tolentino and Pasilyo Victorio Edades galleries at the CCP.
As a part of the Looking for Juan Program of CANVAS, The Weight of Words exhibit explores art as a platform for social change. See how a few letters and words chosen by each artist can spark social discourse and reflections on the truths about human rights, that they don’t exist to divide but rather to unite.

The various works in the exhibition will be included in a book to be launched on the National Day of Human Rights on December 10. The book will be distributed for free to disadvantaged communities in the Philippines as part CANVAS’ 1 Million Books for 1 Million Filipino Children Campaign.
