Parkfest PH Volunteers

Last weekend, Parkfest PH was somehow the event of the month for the people who love arts and crafts.

Parkfest PH

This is only a teaser post about the happiness and craziness that happened during the weekend. Volunteers had their fare share of good vibes and sharing the love and passion for arts and crafts as well. Kate Quebrar, who is part of KFK Collective who won the Art BGC Mural Contest, was there as well even if she’s still injured. She continues to share her radiant personality through crazy antics. With us also is Ate Roie, she has a day job in one of the famous hotel establishments in the metro and doubles as a make-up artist and a calligrapher!

The whole stretch of May 28-29, 2016 was filled with mixed emotions. Clearly, it was a joyous event and seeing people who were enjoying and appreciating the art installations found in Nayong Pilipino (in Luneta Park) really made me feel proud about our artists.

This video was captured by Maan Agsalud who manages Type Kita, a community for those who likes / appreciates / does / makes letters dance, illustrates words and expresses some thoughts through illustrating, writing and anything related to the letters. Together with her sister Roma Agsalud, who co-owns Common Room PH and one-half of Pop Junk Love, they were able to make Parkfest PH happen!

Soon, I will blog about the whole event and the whole Parkfest PH experience. Cheers to the wonderful team behind it! I cannot name you all but kudos to you for sharing your time and precious talent to us, aspirants and fans!

Support and love local artists!

    I love this! I saw a friend post in front of that jeepney and I just had to google where it was from. Too bad Nayong Pilipino was really far. Hope to make time for it this weekend!

    That looks like so much fun! I think it’s great that there’s a place for people like you to celebrate your creativity. And Kate Quebrar, must be very creative to be a calligrapher and makeup artist. I also love that jeepney art installation. Too cool!

    This looks like a lot of fun to be a part of it! I love being able to express my creativity and to be inspired by others! That art installation looked like a lot of fun to work on and to display. I always wonder what happens to the art installations after they are done showing it at an event like this. Are they for sale or do they go on display somewhere or are they just taken apart?

    Looks like you guys had so much fun! Had a busy weekend also that we missed this. We went to Nayong Pilipino sa Clark last April with our boys. I wanted to them to see some of what I saw when I was growing up. I had fond memories with Nayong Pilipino in Paranaque when I was till a child.

    Self expression through art is something that truly stuns me. I just love how artists think and interpret things. Too bad i wasnt event aware of this- not until now.

    It sure looks fun, it’s my first time to hear ParkFestPH, but what is the purpose of this gathering ?

      It’s to revive Nayong Pilipino in Ermita plus to celebrate art, music and good vibes. Also, let the people see wonderful art installations but our artists. 🙂
