Art for Volunteerism at Ayala Museum

The concept of “Bayanihan” is integrated in the core of the Filipino identity. In this day and age, it is very much alive but has taken a different form – the form which involves the readiness and the ability to uplift other people’s lives. In VSO Bahaginan, we take this to heart as we see people as the best agents of change.
Believing that skills are valuable to help communities, VSO Bahaginan has now partnered with local artists who volunteered to make a difference through their artistic talents. It will hold an "Art for Volunteerism" event which is aimed to strengthen the connection between artists and art lovers’ role in the society and their joint ability to fight disadvantage and build fairer societies. A portion of the sales of these artworks will be donated to VSO Bahaginan’s projects locally and all across the globe.
The exhibit, which combines promotion of art appreciation and fund raising, will be held at the Ayala Museum in Makati City starting December 9, 2011. It will be highlighted by the Official Opening Dinner which will be graced by the art contributors, event sponsors and VSO Bahaginan partners. 
We are encouraging you to take part in this event, which combines promotion of art appreciation and fundraising. Be a stakeholder in the process of development through the Art for Volunteerism.
