Bikol Youth Groups, artist alliances, cultural workers to hold mural painting in Sorsogon City

The 1Sambayan-Sorsogon Youth, in partnership with Kurit-Lagting Art Collective, will hold a mural painting in the city of Sorsogon City this November.

The activity is co-presented by Concerned Artists of the Philippines-Bicol, 1Sambayan-Sorsogon, and 1Sambayan Youth National.

“We are inviting Sorsoganon youth artists to share their talent and pave the way to good governance through art. It is now the time to craft your concepts, sharpen your ideas with the people,” the groups said in a statement.

The mural project is just one of the creative initiatives of the groups to encourage young Filipinos to be one of the key players in the vision to revive the failing democracy in Philippine governance by taking a more active and responsive role as citizens. 

1Sambayan-Sorsogon Youth is the youth arm of 1Sambayan Sorsogon which recognizes the youth as a critical voting bloc that could determine the country’s future.

The 1Sambayan-Sorsogon Chapter is part of 1Sambayan National, which is a broad coalition of democratic forces representing the basic sectors in Sorsogon which aims to usher in a competent, trustworthy administration in the May 2022 national elections.

The Kurit-Lagting is a collective artistic collaboration of Bicolano artists from Sorsogon, Albay, Catanduanes, Masbate and Camarines provinces with art advocacies on human rights and the environment.

The Art Collective is a member of the Sorsogon Arts Council and the Concerned Artists of the Philippines Bicol Chapter.

The Concerned Artists of the Philippines Bicol Chapter (CAP-BIcol) is one of CAP’s newest chapters formed in October 2020, which is composed of artists, musicians, writers, filmmakers and cultural workers from various disciplines that work toward a nationalist, people-oriented art and culture.
