Anong Papel Mo? Mga Kwento ng Pagmulat at Pagyabong

Anong Papel Mo? Mga Kwento ng Pagmulat at Pagyabong on March 3, 2023

The public is invited to “Anong Papel Mo? Mga Kwento ng Pagmulat at Pagyabong”, an Artist Talk on March 3 (Friday), from 1:00 – 4:00 p.m. at the UP Fine Arts Gallery Multipurpose Hall.

The talk launches “Limbag at Likhang Kamay: Papel ng Kababaihang Manlilikha sa Pagmumulat”, a discussion and workshop project that explores how women artists wielded paper, among the most fragile of materials, towards pamumulat: connecting the personal and the political through the written page, painting, and printmaking, writ large.

The talk highlights the contributions of UP’s women artist-scholars to cultural work and art practice. It features a panel of distinguished art practitioners: director and scriptwriter Bibeth Orteza, conservation expert and visual artist June Dalisay, and printmaker and educator Ambie Abaño. It will be co-moderated by Annie Pacaña and Lisa Ito. Please register for the event at

The second part will be art workshops on and children’s book production, printmaking, and giant poster painting to be facilitated by the artists. Interested participants may sign up for limited slots in one-day free art workshops, from 8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Participants will experience hands-on production of these art forms and hear stories of how these were used to express personal to collective struggles. The workshops are:
