" A pIece for peace" for Mindanao Peace Week

Project Title:
Explicit and Implicit Art Expressions

The title suggests exposing two faces of expression in art which are conveying meaning explicitly (directly) and implicitly (indirectly). Lie beneath is also the sense of giving importance to pieces of art to express the whole thing about “Peace”.

The participating artists would exhibit diverse artwork and expression of peace that would leave the audience thinking on their own the meaning of peace. Thus, challenging them to take their part in achieving it within themselves and their community.

Every individual has his/her own understanding and notion for peace. Others think of it as the absence of war and chaos, some look at it as anything that could stand still, calm and unruffled amidst difficulty and turmoil. However, whatever meaning we coin with it, our attempt of defining signifies our consciousness necessary for achieving peace.

Project Concept:

The process of art making is a result of conversation of artists on peace process. It appeals for a response, a request, a point of inquiry, a point of convergence, a point where one has to share his/her part. It calls for participation. It adheres a moment of reflection on Peace.

The peace concepts of the participating artists are based on their personal experiences/insights/perspectives. During the art making process, the following questions were given considerations by the artists:

1. How do you process experiences and transform this experience into symbols?
2. How do you infuse peace concept and sustain this peace in art making?
3. How do you utilize art as a vehicle for conflict resolution and as a means for people to live their lives in peace?

December is the celebration of Mindanao Peace Week. It is celebrated annually from the last Thursday of November to the first Wednesday of December. This art exhibition is the contribution of “Hikut-Hungihong” art collective that aims to:
· participate on the celebration of peace week;
· to provide an alternative venue for artists/ students/faculty in assessing peace;
· to be able to draw out concepts, ideas, activities, initiatives on peace thru art;
· to instill the culture of peace thru arts;
· to evoke the spirit of peace in the audience by connecting to their longing of change;
· to awaken significant meaning of peace by putting even the most mundane experience of peace into art expression;
to be able to characterize the components of peace: inner peace, peace with others and peace with nature;
to conduct an art workshop about peace.
