BONTOC, Mountain Province

In observance of the 18-Day Campaign to ending Violence Against Women and Children (VAWC), the Mountain Province State Polytechnic College (MPSC), through the Gender and Development (GAD) Office, hosted an art session and exhibit on December 5, 2023 at the College Auditorium.
MPSPC President Edgar G. Cue, represented by Executive Assistant Shaine Marie K. Macli-ing, emphasized that the activity is significant in showcasing the talent of the students as well as in
supporting the campaign against VAWC.

“This activity is lucratively important in upbringing the talents of our students in aesthetic views, specifically in painting, as support for the on-going-18-day campaign,” he said. Cue said VAWC is a universal issue and the institution plays a crucial role in creating awareness and combating such exigencies in the community. Participating students also expressed gratitude for the conduct of said activity.

“We are very thankful for this free and engaging activity for VAWC. It is important to be
knowledgeable about this type of issue, the earlier the better for us to know what to do and not to
do,” Edwin Kalagui Gomez II said. Said activity aims to develop the artistic skills of the participating students, and to advocate for social change by sending messages about ending VAWC through artworks. Outputs of the activity with the title ”Brushing Off Violence: A Student Art Exhibit on Ending VAWC” are now on display at the school campus for everyone to see, appreciate and contemplate on.
