Last July 30, I received an invite to attend the Avida Land and Ayala Museum Inspire Every Day Event, but unfortunately I was not able to come.
To give us an idea on what happened that day, Avida sent their press release. Here it is:
Avida Land, in collaboration with the Ayala Museum and CNN Philippines Life, present Inspire Every Day—a full-day event at the Ayala Museum that celebrates art, literature, history and everything in between, aiming to inspire visitors to pursue their passions in their daily lives. Admission is free.
From 9:00AM to 6:00PM on July 30, 2016, visitors engage in a day of interesting activities and fun-filled pocket events in line with the theme, “Inspiration Got Us Started, Passion Keeps Us Going.” With free access to enter Ayala Museum and the Filipinas Heritage Library, visitors are also treated to a selection of changing exhibitions, such as Object Travelogue/Dialogue, which showcases pieces from the
Ayala Museum collection that have been featured in exhibitions abroad; Sanso: Setting the Stage, an exhibition of reproductions of Sanso’s work by artists Toym Imao and James Reyes that showcase his stage and costume design work; and The Diary of Tetsuya Noda: Steven Co Collection, which presents an intimate glimpse into the life of the Japanese contemporary print maker.
Visitors to this exciting event also get a special look at an exhibit from Julia Nebrija called Old Manila Lego Architecture. The day is action-packed, with talks on How to Make it in Manila from Manila’s most in-demand fashion photographer BJ Pascual, and Historical Films from multi-award winning film director, composer, editor, sound designer and writer Jerrold Tarog—a can’t-miss- chance for visitors to get up-close and personal with insights, tips and inspiration from these iconic personalities.
Activity Stations can also be found throughout the venue, with a patch station from ARTWORK, a portrait studio by BJ Pascual, and historical diorama coloring by the Ayala Museum that are guaranteed to unleash your creativity. Incredible and exciting performances are also scheduled throughout the day, with Rock Ballet by Ballet Philippines, a yoga class for your little ones from Fire Tree Press, a Historical Rap Battle, as well as pop-up performances from Manila Symphony Orchestra’s Junior Orchestra and artists from the Tago Jazz Cafe.
Another highlight of the event is Avida Land’s Homepossible installation, located at the Museum Café and brought to life by painter and calligrapher Anina Rubio’s live art. Through Avida’s Homepossible event, visitors are given an opportunity to become homebuyers, find a space where they can express themselves and experience an inspired life firsthand. Avida also launches “Pursuit of Passion,” a lifestyle blog and resource guide that motivates and encourages everyone to breathe life into their passions for art, design, wellness and finance.
“Inspire Every Day and Homepossible are venues for the public to be inspired to achieve their dreams and live their aspirations. We hope that visitors can take their learnings from the day and carry them on into their daily lives,” says Tess Tatco, Avida Marketing Head.
