Embracing a Year of Hope: Museo ng Pag-Asa Marks Its 1-Year Milestone and Introduces Angat Sining

In its inaugural year, the Museo ng Pag-asa has evolved into more than just a repository of gifts received by Atty. Leni Robredo during her presidential campaign. It has become a symbol of hope, embodying the aspirations of those who envision a brighter future for the Philippines.

To commemorate its first anniversary, the Museo ng Pag-asa proudly presents "Pista sa Museo," a month-long celebration in September. This event series serves as an expression of gratitude to all those who have visited, contributed to, and supported the museum in various ways.

The festivities kicked off on September 4 at the Museo ng Pag-asa grounds. During this opening ceremony, Raffy Magno, Executive Director of the Angat Buhay Foundation (ABF), delivered a heartfelt message. Subsequently, plaques and certificates were awarded to Team Museo, the museum's partner merchants, and its top three donor merchants.

A significant highlight of the event was the generous gift presented by the family of National Artist Abdulmari Asia Imao, represented by multimedia artist Toym Imao. They donated the first copy of 300 giclée prints of a 2014 Sarimanok painting to support ABF's arts and culture programs. Atty. Robredo graciously accepted the gift and announced that the prints would be available in the Museo's store, with proceeds supporting ABF's efforts in Arts and Culture.

In a momentous announcement, Atty. Leni introduced the latest addition to the Angat Buhay Foundation—Angat Sining. This initiative, the Angat Sining Fellowship for Young Filipino Artists, is designed to bring the healing and transformative power of art to marginalized communities through exposure trips, talks, and training sessions. By offering emerging local talent the rare opportunity to learn from established Philippine artists like National Artist BenCab, Toym Imao, Mark Justiniani, and Ilustrador ng Kabataan (INK), the fellowship aims to nurture and enhance their artistic skills. The program will culminate with a special exhibit in April 2024 at the Museo ng Pag-asa.

In addition to Angat Sining, Atty. Leni unveiled a series of events throughout the month at the Museo. "PINKS NOT DEAD," an exhibition by Camille Quintos and Francis Natividad at Silid Salaysay, will be a prominent feature.

Starting in the third week of September, daily events at the Museo include "Gabi ng Musika" on September 20, "Araw at Gabi ng Sayawan" on September 21 featuring morning zumba and evening ballroom dancing, the screening of "ROSAS The Song, The Journey" on September 22 at 5 PM, "Radikal Self-Expression Day" with dynamic drag queens on September 23, and a special family day celebration on September 24.

The "Pista sa Museo" is more than just a celebration of gratitude; it serves as a tribute to the community, the dedicated Museo staff, and the countless visitors who have shown unwavering support. It is a reminder of all that has transpired in the past year and a call to continue inspiring our fellow Filipinos to hope and dream of a brighter tomorrow.
