I found out about Project Bakawan—an artists-led initiative that seeks to address environmental issues and harness the power of art to promote awareness, provoke dialogue, and inspire action—as it was happening, midway through the calendar of events, a whirlwind of WTFs, how’s & why-doesn’t-anybody-know-about-its, why isn’t anybody talking?
Ain’t no tellin.
I took a look at what had already gone down and I missed a bunch of things I would have wanted to catch, had I found out about them earlier:
“Listening Terminals” / Bike Design Workshop / CIV:LAB Kitchen Survival 101 & Talk on / Food Politics / Kite Making Workshop / DIY Survival Workshop & Disaster talk / Windsock Making Workshop / Pirate Box Workshop (Offline Internet File Sharing)

Glad I found about it in time, to catch a couple of things
Glad I found about it in time, to tell other people to catch a couple of things
Talking in the dark, not knowing anything really.
8 “Luntiang Tabing” Film Festival
Free screenings of change-your-mind-about-things films, my personal favorite (idea, not film, no frontin’ I haven’t seen it but whatever bro) is SELLING THE RIGHT TO NAME A PILE OF GARBAGE.
Think about all your waste and owning up to it, giving it a name, recognizing it? Then sell that idea?
For goodness sakes, well for goodness sakes.

It’s hard to go to things that you know nothing about. I’d link you to it but I can’t find it either. However there’s the Project Bakawan umbrella on top of it that makes me feel like…
You and I got options, bae.
1 OFF-SITE // OUT OF SIGHT
“Where you movin?” I said “On to better things”
Coming clean, this whole thing is just about this old thing. The old stud farm reclaimed, artists & the community around it freestyling, magic and art and people! Here’s to hoping that more places like this appear, suddenly, out of the blue. Like that new Drake mixtape.
This been where you find me at / I’ve got to do some reflecting.
