My beloved boss, though learned late of the event, managed to get me a ticket but due to the rains, I was not able to make it.

Nick Olanka goes to post this on Facebook, and darn it, this makes me wish I took the bus last night!


Theme: How Art and Culture Can Change Our World

Quezon City, Philippines
October 8th, 2011

About this event

One artist recently put it to us that “Hope starts when people work on changing how we think. This is why art is important. Art is the expression of the ideas and aspirations of people, and they form the foundation of culture.”

Join us, for one afternoon, for a sharing of thoughtful big ideas by speakers from film, television, the visual arts, music and dance, literature and new media on why art and culture matters and represents hope – for us as individuals, for our country, and for the world.
