Pista ng Pamana
About the Event
Join us at PISTA NG PAMANA this May 27-June 2, 2019! The HUB Make Lab family initiates and invites you to take part and take pride in this heartfelt showcase of the many rich facets of Filipino heritage—from art, literature, design, architecture, music, performance, food, fashion and celebration!
The historic commercial district of Escolta functions as an inclusive access point and a living case study of how modern urban lifestyle affects our cultural heritage. As everyday stakeholders of Escolta and conceptualizers and former organizers of Escolta Block Party, we asked ourselves: how do we make the appreciation of Philippine Heritage more meaningful and relatable to a broader audience? How do we bring the focus of people back to it and deepen its meaning to our audience at Escolta events? The end result is the PISTA NG PAMANA celebrations which is a heritage-first celebration that we plan to organise annually.
As heritage is enriched through a cycle of understanding, valuing, preserving and enjoyment, our community of makers and artists cultivate this cycle through exhibits, performances, screenings, talks and workshops.
After three years that the HUB Make Lab has opened, we are broadening the view beyond our neighbourhood. Our aim for PISTA NG PAMANA is to make celebrations in the neighbourhood more meaningful, educational, and to be a beacon for future generations, highlighting the importance of preserving our country's tangible and intangible treasures. All together, we at the HUB Make Lab believe, these serve as the foundation for rebuilding and strengthening the Filipino spirit.
This celebration is a free public event which gathers experts and enthusiasts of different practices. It is a toast to the third anniversary of our maker community—HUB Make Lab, and a complement to the NCCA’s lineup of activities in museums, galleries, universities, and government institutions.
Celebrate with Escolta, the queen of Manila streets, and the HUB Make Lab as we close National Heritage Month in style - #letsshapeourculture, #letsmakeitmeaningful, and #letsmakeourhistory together!
