Cagayan de Oro City – Ayala Centrio will once again host Art Tents this coming February 7 to 12, 2020 as it features local artists and the creative community of the region in celebrating the National Arts Month.
In its 3rd year, Art Tents is a 5-day affair held in the Ayala Centrio Activity Center where the mall serves as a space for painters, animators, designers, poets, writers, performers, and visual artists to share their work and expertise. Also, mall-goers can indulge in various artistic experiences.
This year’s event aims to raise funds for the tent community in Kidapawan for the benefit of the displaced residents after a major quake hit the city in 2019.
“What started as a community project has now certainly evolved into a colorful, safe and exciting avenue that everyone looks forward to and learns from every year. Ayala Centrio takes tremendous pride in this synergy that we have with the community,” shared Ayala Centrio Mall General Manager Hammer Roa.
Here are the resource speakers for the Art Talks:
Among the exhibitors and workshops, this year include Lei and Lyle, NAGMAC, Hands at Work, Indie CDO, CDO Film Society, Bowerbird, Anjo Bolardo, Write Script, D Vision, Oro Arts Guild, Bam Garibay, Artsada, and Dan + Deva.
Other than the Art Talks, there will be booth workshops, maker’s market, film marathon, indie music, public art, and live mural painting during the 5-day event.
Also, Ayala Centrio has partnered with the Ayala Foundation in rebuilding a tent community in Kidapawan. With this, an eco tote bag designed by Melissa Abuga-a, a Kagay-anon visual artist and a participant of Art Tents, will be sold for Php 180 from February 7 to March 31, 2020. All proceeds will be donated to the tent community.
