Buku-Buku Kafe supports local artists in Komiket

Before summer ends, people from the south and nearby will experience local creativity, as Buku-Buku Kafe brings Komiket: The Filipino Komiks and Art Market to SM Southmall from May 25 to 26.

Running on its third year, Komiket South 2019 will be Buku-Buku Kafe’s biggest art market yet, with over 80 artists from all over Metro Manila, Laguna, and Cavite bringing their stickers, art prints, comics, zines, and eco-friendly crafts to SM Southmall’s Event Center. Joining the fun are Amalgamated Specialties Corporation (AMSPEC) and Mary Chi Limon with a creative journaling workshop and the cast and crew of Cinemalaya film ANi: The Harvest for an interview and trailer screening. AMSPEC will also be presenting their Crayola TakeNote washable gel pens, while ANi will be selling the comics prologue to the upcoming film during the event.

Representing homegrown creativity is Caviteno arts collective Astrolikha, who will be starting the creative convention with a talk on the southern art scene and a zine-making workshop, proceeds of which will go to Astrolikha’s outreach programs.

“Creativity is for everyone,” said Jessica Santiago, manager and partner of Buku-Buku Kafe and Head of Secretariat for Komiket South. “We want our friends here in the South to remember this, to keep creating, and to make sure they are heard.”

Komiket South 2019 will run from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. on May 25 and 26 at the SM Southmall Event Center. Entrance is free. For more information on the event workshops, exhibitors, and merch, visit fb.com/komiketinc.
