The graduate students of Philippine Studies 201 at the UP Asian Center are organizing a photo exhibit, Reconnecting Butuan and the Asia-Pacific: History, Heritage and Identity from 28 to 29 November 2018 at the UP Asian Center. The event opens at 3 pm, 28 November and will feature lectures (tentative) and Manobo cultural traditions and performances. It is free and open to the public, but participants are encouraged to sign up:
*Please sign up so we can let you know if the lecture(s) will push through. We will send you the latest program on or before 28 November, which will indicate whether the lecture(s) [and other events] will push through.
The photo exhibit will showcase the vibrant history, culture and heritage of the Manobos and of Butuan: from the balangays (boats) and the controversial First Mass to the traditional Laksoy (local wine) making. A small, eight-feet version of the Balangay—made from various materials—will also be on display. The exhibit will also showcase the results of the community engagement and literacy program done by the PS 201 Students in an elementary school.
The exhibit is organized by graduate students of Philippine Studies (PS) 201—Philippines in the Asia-Pacific—under Dr. Henelito Sevilla. It is the outcome of their visit to Butuan in November 2018.
