Members of the Pasa-Kalye Teens will have their culmination program at the Ibaloy Park Saturday even as two of Pasa-Kalye’s more veteran artists launched their exhibit at the Old Baguio Boys Tuesday.
It will be a day-long activity for the senior high school arts and designs tract students from the Baguio City High School as they host their counterparts from Saint Louis Center High School, Pines City National High School, University of Baguio, and La Trinidad National High School.
“This will be fun as we welcome these kids officially within our group,” said Marica Docyogen, recently elected president of the Pasa-Kalye Arts Society.
An on-the-spot painting session will kick off the festivity backed by Beneco and BZA Home Arts at 9am after the opening ceremony at 8:30. There will be a workshop on traditional dance and gong playing early in the afternoon, followed by the closing ceremony including the distribution of certificates to sponsors of past Pasa-Kalye events.
After the awards it will be busking for guests, mostly BCHS graduates who are either in a band or folk singers in local bars.
The Kawiwit Storytelling Initiative will also tap to share their stories to younger participants of the day-long activity.
“This is really a good project for our kids as they need the encouragement and guidance from our veteran artists,” said Docyogen who is elated of the city’s inclusion by the UNESCO to its list of cities for arts and culture.
“This is a statement that our city is for arts and artists,’ she added.
Earlier this week, Roland Bay-an and Joseph Domirez, Jr. literally brought home their Apache Indian paintings to one of the houses for the all Baguio boys club.
The 1 Nation: Apache Indians Exhibit is a 13-piece exhibit of the two Pasa-Kalye veteran artists, who grew up loving Indian stories and movies.
“We just have this fascination about Indians and the fictional foes, the cowboys,” said Bay-an who grew up in Trancoville.
The Old Baguio Boys is now one of the havens for aspiring artists and is owned by two Apache members, Vince Go and Jojo Marrero. Marrero’s son, Jason, manages the place.
It is also within Nevada Square, owned by the Nevada family whose two members, Edgardo and Elmo, a former city councilor, are members. PML / ABN
