This year’s National Arts Month and PWU SFAD Week at the JCB Studio Gallery offers two interactions on social and personal responsibility. Both activities are designed to guide the creativity of students towards contexts that address significant issues within individual bodies and the bodies of communities shaping consciousness today.

On Wednesday, February 7 from 2:00pm to 6:00pm, UGATLahi Artists Collective will convene a series of talks and a workshop for the zine project INKUWENTRO. Perspectives on the extended Martial Law in Mindanao will be presented by Rius Valle of Save Our Schools-Mindanao. Likewise, how we might understand the threat to Media as audiences and practitioners of media design will be presented by a a speaker from Tudla Productions. The round of talks will culminate with an Artist’s Talk by Iggy Rodriguez, 2009 CCP Thirteen Artists Awardee and an exponent of art activism through his exhibited works and protest installations. The discussions are meant to stimulate the final part of the activity which will be a workshop that will produce works on paper that ill be considered for inclusion in the Inkuwentro Zine to be produced by UGATLahi. This event is part of the chain of inter-school interactions organized by the same artists’ group for National Arts Month.

For Wednesday, February 21 from 2:00pm to 6:00pm, doctors and medical practitioners of the Philippine Society of Venereologists, Inc. (PSVI), an affiliate of the Philippine Medical Association will present talks on BUKAS-ISIP to raise awareness on the prevalence of HIV and other Sexually Transmitted Diseases (STDs) among Filipino youth. The talks are aimed to promote sexual responsibility and the importance of instilling informed attitudes about sex in today’s fast-paced, social media-propelled culture. The activity is also planned to stimulate creative concepts that would translate into artworks in various mediums in a call that students from School of Fine arts and Design and other PWU schools could participate in.

These activities are open and free to both the PWU Community and visitors to the gallery.
