UPCFA GAD Art Workshops for Women’s Month
This memory project and workshop takes off from a historic mural painted by the members of the NPAA and unfurled at the UP Main Library in 1971. The artist-facilitator will revisit the steps and contexts of making the dazibao, a wall-mounted newspaper or mural used as a form of protest, propaganda, and popular communication in China during that period. Participants must commit to the whole day activity. Sign up for slots through this link: https://bit.ly/
The two workshops are part of the project titled “Limbag at Likhang Kamay: Papel ngKababaihang Manlilikha sa Pamumulat” for the UP Diliman Arts and Culture Festival 2023 and National Women’s Month in March.
The project explores how women artists have 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, and highlights the special role and contribution of women as artists and cultural workers.
It is a pilot project of the UPCFA GAD Committee in cooperation with the UP Fine Arts Gallery and the Concerned Artists of the Philippines (CAP).
The first leg was an artist talk, “Ano’ng Papel Mo? Mga Kwento ng Pagmulat at Pagyabong”, last March 3 and a workshop on Basic Relief Printmaking with Color Techniques with Ambie Abaño last March 10. For inquiries, contact us at limbagatlikhangkamay@gmail.
