KULTURA 2013 Day 1: Aug. 7 Wednesday: BAYANIHAN Interactive Art Installation
@ Daniels Spectrum 585 Dundas St East 11am – 7pm
As part of Toronto Artscape Inc.’s Outdoor Arts Program, Toronto-based Filipino artists, Julius Poncelet Manupul, Kristina Guison, and Tim Manalo will collaborate with Regent Park, Cabbagetown and the surrounding neighbourhoods to lead in Bayanihan: An Interactive Art Installation at Daniels Spectrum.
The participatory art project will bring these established Filipino-Canadian artists together with the local community, to create a life-sized woven bahay kubo—a Filipino hut. This project hopes to embody the spirit of bayanihan, not only in its literal act of a community creating a collective piece, but also in highlighting the universality of the theme of home in different cultural backgrounds. During this event, participants will unearth their personal stories of home through paint and merge with others to discover the power of the community’s greater narrative.
