Zamboanga City conducts artworks for art party 2012

PDFPrintE-mail

In a recently concluded ARTWORKS: AN Art that Works program by a concerted effort of partner youth institutions to include the Philippine Youth Leadership Program (PYLP), Youth Solidarity for Peace (YSP) and Peace Advocates Zamboanga (PAZ) last August 8, 2012, twenty students from both Zamboanga East and West Central School actively participated in the said event.

The Student Artists who represented the school in the said event were officially endorsed by the School Administrators respectively. It was further supported by the Schools’ Division of Zamboanga City-Department of Education.

In a DEPED Division Memorandum, Endorsement Letters were forwarded to the participating schools for the said ARTWORKS. The event was organized by Mr. Arwald Candido, Alumnus, PYLP Scholar as his community response initiative after the PYLP Training held at Northern Illinois University, Dekalb, State of Illinois and Washington last Summer, this year.

He initiated the program to provide the students and artists an avenue to integrate the Culture of peace through visual arts workshops. He believed that through paintings, students can be motivated to explore and discover more messages to the cause of peace.

The paintings were grounded on the Idea of having an Ideal Peaceful community. Mr. Nelvert Anino, one of Zamboanga’s rising Artists mentored the children in their chosen specializations- poster making and painting.

The paintings will be used for two respective exhibitions. One is for the PYLP Exhibition as a Follow-On Activity of the PYLP Scholars set later the month. Secondly, the twenty paintings will be representing the Philippines in the ART PARTY 2012 set December 2012 at Hiroshima, Japan.

Art Party is a program, co-sponsored by ANT-Hiroshima and Art Party Hiroshima, that invites children's orphanages, shelters, and other children’s groups to take part in an annual art exhibition in Hiroshima, Japan.

The artwork created by children from these organizations is sold at the exhibition and 100% of the money raised is returned to support the children involved.

Art Party seeks to raise donations for children's organizations while raising awareness of children in need. At the same time, the Art Party exhibition—with artwork created by children from countries around the world—is designed to be an interesting and educational event for the Hiroshima community.

This year marks the 10th Art Party exhibition. Exhibitions held from 2003~2011 were all quite successful. Art Party 2012 will take place at a large art gallery in a community center in downtown Hiroshima, from December 11~17. Proceeds from the exhibit will be given back to the children artist and recipient school next year that will be used for schools projects or community engagements. Thus, Zamboanga City has to be very proud about the engagement.

Local Coordinator of Ant-Hiroshima Mr. Aldrin Bucoy-Abdurahim, IRSMP Executive Coordinator of PAZ and PYLP Alumni Association Board Member enlightened the children about the said engagements. He mentioned about the students representation in Japan and inspired them to continue and always improve the craft of painting.

The stories of our communities are the fundamental ingredient in the craft for beautiful paintings in the country. As we seek to further encourage more international friends to help our country, discipline and commitment to work for peace is but very necessary to start from within. Peace is a way of life. Aldrin Bucoy-Abdurahim
