Art aficionados are in for a special treat this October as the World Wide Fund of Nature (WWF) Philippines launches Earth Exhibit—the organization’s latest initiative, highlighting Filipino artistry while promoting environmental conservation.
The event, which aims to raise funds to support WWF-PH’s environmental frontliners in these challenging times and provide food assistance for 209 Dumagat families in Ipo Watershed, will kick off this October with Art Commissions for Nature, where the public can avail art commissions from their chosen participating artist in exchange for their donation.
Joining the event is Celeste Lecaroz, a local creative who believes that art can help uplift Filipino communities in these challenging times.
“Art is one of the many tools that can help deliver this to the world. Through paintings, stories, songs, performances, illustrations, and poems members of communities can uplift one another and share to others lessons on environmental conservation and restoration,” the visual artist shared.
