A free hybrid workshop on koinobori, the art of Japanese carp-shaped windsock, was held in celebration of Tango no Sekku (Day of the Children).
Headlining the activity was the President of the Association for Wa Culture Education, Dr. Nakamura Tetsu, who taught the participants aged 7 to 12 to design their banners that will aid in their understanding of climate and weather.
The workshop was in line with Tropical Climate Forensics, an ongoing online exhibition that provides an in-depth look at the anchors of the climate crisis. The digital showcase, which features a series of biomes created by Filipino trans-disciplinary artist Derek Tumala, was supported by British Council’s Creative Commissions for Climate Action, a global program exploring climate change through art, science, and digital technology.
It was held in collaboration with the Museum of Contemporary Art and Design, the De La Salle-College of Saint Benilde, and the Japan Foundation Manila Office.
Alitaptap Artists Community, Museo De La Salle Bacolod, the University of St. La Salle Bacolod, and La Salle University Ozamiz also conducted the workshop.
