October is National Indigenous Peoples Month. The Halad Museum is joining in the celebration by featuring the Talaandig Indigenous Community Artists to share with us their internationally recognized soil art!
As part of efforts to revive this dying art, it has been showcased abroad in countries like the US, South Korea and The Netherlands to rave reviews. Now, we’re bringing it to Cebu!
Talaandig artists use soil as the medium (yes, no need for paint!). Their artworks come in the colors of the earth — browns, reds and grays of the soil — soothing tones that express their tribe’s life, beliefs, practices and close affinity with the land.
The Talaandig are Indigenous People (IP) living in small communities in the Kitanglad Mountain Ranges in Bukidnon and nearby provinces of the Mindanao Region. With a population estimated at 100,000 only, the Talaandig people are one of the very few IP communities who have successfully preserved their age-old culture and heritage.
Discover a new creative outlet and explore a new culture! And with the Halad Museum committed to expose Cebuanos to more beautiful and rare artistic traditions from the different parts of the country, we’re making the workshop more affordable. We’re offering a specially discounted learning investment for students and teachers at P500 per person ONLY and for professionals at P650 with registration until Oct. 25, 2012. On-site registrations will be the still affordable regular rate of P600 for students/teachers and P800 for professionals.
And there’s more: Learn to jam with ethnic instruments used in world music — from the traditional (tambul, katyapi, dayuday, kubing, etc.) to the experimental (tambuleleng, kokak, etc.) — for P200 per person only! Be an early bird and pay P150 before Oct. 25, 2012.
As an extra special treat, the Halad Museum is also hosting a free performance workshop for those interested to learn the song and dance traditions of the Talaandig. Join by simply paying the museum admission fee of P20 only.
