    Art In Island #ECOChallenge 2019 @ Art in Island
    Sep 28 @ 5:43 AM

    This 2019, Art In Island aims to raise awareness and promote the need to preserve, protect, and restore the Earth through art. Hence, it is set to conduct a series of events, promos, and art competitions in coordination with their theme, #ECOChallenge.

    Also Read: Art in Island in Quezon City: Where paintings come to life

    Art In Island presents their trademark events and annual art competitions: the Mural Competition from September 3 to 8 for Filipino artists aged 18 and above, and the On-the-Spot Painting Competition on September 28 for Filipino students aged 11 to 17.

    With these events, the museum hopes to spread the word that the Earth is in need of our help—and that we can help in our little ways.

    Along with the Mural Competition, the museum also introduces the Mural Fest. Mural Fest is a week-long celebration of art where everyone is invited to paint murals.

    Take note that for all the events, pre-registration is required.

    The event series started last May 3 with their ‘Palit Bote’ #EcobrickChallenge.

    Said challenge encourages the public to turn their non-biodegradable wastes into eco-bricks that can be exchanged for free admission to Art In Island Museum. The eco-bricks are plastic bottles packed and stuffed tight with non-biodegradable wastes, such as plastic bags, sachets, plastic straws, and another plastic packaging.

    For a corresponding number of eco-bricks, guests are given free museum admission.

    Think… before you use the next plastic bag.#EcoChallenge #EcobrickChallenge Enjoy #ArtInIsland Museum for FREE while helping save the earth! See event mechanics: https://tinyurl.com/aiipalitbotemechanics

    Art In Islandさんの投稿 2019年7月30日火曜日

    Donated eco-bricks will be given to organizations and communities that will benefit from using the eco-bricks in their builds.

    In addition, Art In Island makes eco-bricking more convenient and accessible to everyone by being one of the official drop-off points in Quezon City.

    Art In Island aspires to be an eco-friendly establishment that supports the zero-waste and plastic-free movement. Through Ecobrick Seminar Workshops, everyone can learn proper waste management and along with the Eco Market, guests can find local eco-friendly products that will help you live a zero-waste lifestyle.

    Art In Island is one of Asia’s biggest 3D Art museums. The museum has over a hundred 3D paintings that allow their guests to interact with them and be a part of the art.

    What are you waiting for? Join Art In Island Museum’s #ECOChallenge to support the plastic-free and zero-waste movement.

    The festival they started last year brought together over 100 artists for an extravaganza of Filipino-made music. This year, the festival is encouraging participating artists for collaborations across genres, as well as important discussions other than just music.

    “We had so much fun last year and we wanted to do it again this year, and this time, with a twist,” said Ryan Cayabyab. This year, honorees will also be given a token of gratitude for their contribution to Filipino music, especially in music education.

    One of the artists participating, Martti Franca performed some samples of his own songs and covers

    Pinoy Playlist Music Festival elevates the public’s consciousness that homegrown music goes beyond being a form of entertainment, but a living tradition—the binding “glue” that forms, strengthens, and moves the Filipino community.

    In line with this, Pinoy Playlist Music Festival will be conducting PPMF-X—their first interactive team teaching 500 public school kids from Taguig on October 10, a day before the festival starts. Topics will include music and the brain, music for self-expression, and music in culture-making.

    For those looking for local art, festival attendees are welcome to shop at the community bazaar, BGC Art Mart, located at the Alveo Central Plaza of the BGC Arts Center. Done monthly, this bazaar is the place to shop for unique local crafts and artworks!

    Pinoy Playlist Music Festival elevates the public’s consciousness that homegrown music goes beyond being a form of entertainment, but a living tradition—the binding “glue” that forms, strengthens, and moves the Filipino community.

    In line with this, Pinoy Playlist Music Festival will be conducting PPMF-X—their first interactive team teaching 500 public school kids from Taguig on October 10, a day before the festival starts. Topics will include music and the brain, music for self-expression, and music in culture-making.

    For those looking for local art, festival attendees are welcome to shop at the community bazaar, BGC Art Mart, located at the Alveo Central Plaza of the BGC Arts Center. Done monthly, this bazaar is the place to shop for unique local crafts and artworks!

    Manila FAME October 2019 @ World Trade Center Manila
    Oct 17 @ 9:00 AM – 7:00 PM

    Established as the Philippines’ premier design and lifestyle event, Manila FAME will once again showcase new and innovative products from a collaboration between Filipino manufacturers and renowned Filipino designers!

    It’s happening this October 17 to 19, 2019 at the World Trade Center Manila in Pasay.

    Manila FAME happens twice a year: April and October

    Manila FAME has been organized through its product development initiatives. The Design Commune, the trade show’s central special setting, will highlight more than a hundred new design-forward pieces from the furniture, fashion, home décor, and lifestyle sectors.

    With several new trends looking towards the future of design and fashion, the Design Commune’s current theme takes exception by looking back at the time-honored traditions of Philippine design and material culture while creating new products suitable to the modern lifestyle, entitled Heritage Reimagined.

    “Heritage Reimagined” looks back at the archives of the exhibitors, a goldmine of talents and ideas under the tutelage of Manila FAME, to incorporate timeless trends into modern interpretations for the next generation.

    Under the fresh and upbeat creative direction of Vince Uy, a team of designers from the home, lighting, furniture, and fashion sectors will tackle the challenge head-on to develop a bevy of designs and product concepts.

    Said concepts take heavy influence from the treasure trove of cultural iconography and product designs, which Manila FAME and its exhibitors have been immersed in throughout the decades.

    The traditional banig is imagined to be more than just a sleeping mat in these colorful wedges by LARA that are bound to become a sleeper hit in the fashion scene.

    To give you an idea on what to expect at Manila Fame’s 70th Edition, here are some of the pieces produced from the collaboration of exporters and design luminaries through the Design Commune:

    Solihiya bag by Island Girl PH. The bag uses a weaving pattern used in the vintage wooden chairs popularized in the 1980’s with a new fashion twist.

    Formerly used for costumes and traditional clothing, these iconic Filipino textiles are now given new life in ready-to-wear designer clothes by Wear Your Culture.

    For this year, Asia’s best design destination will likewise feature a roster of other exciting offerings.

    The show will have a Green Conference that focuses on sustainable solutions, an Artisans Village that highlights regional specialty products, and a Fashion E-Tailer segment that features online retailers of rising fashion brands.

    Manila FAME last April 2019 also featured an Artisans Village presenting the provinces of Antique, Albay, Marawi, and Zamboanga

    Manila FAME is organized by the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) through its export promotion arm, the Center for International Trade Expositions and Missions (CITEM).

    It is made possible through a funding support from the congressional initiative of Former Senator Loren Legarda, who now serves as the Congresswoman of the lone district of Antique.

    The staple and sophisticated round hand purse has a new groove—Beatriz Accessories specializes in adding quirk and color to everyday fashion pieces.

    As a melting pot of Filipino creativity, Manila FAME is the Philippines’ premier sourcing destination for high-quality artisanal products. It serves as a cultivating ground and springboard for innovative, top-of-the-line Philippine products and designers to break through key international markets.
