As part of The Philippines International Visual Arts Fest 09 (PIVAF09) there is a series of free lectures covering a range of subjects of interest to those involved and appreciative of the visual arts. Covering photography, conservation, advertising and media they are presented by some well known figures in the Philippines art scene including George Tapan, Lyn Yusi, Emily Abrera, Ross Capili and Jay Alonzo.
After each of the lectures an Open Forum is planned in which questions raised in the lecture and other concerns can be discussed. And your humble scribe is a panelist along with Ross Capili for the forum following Jay Alonzo’s “Photography for Everyone” lecture. This will be at Robinson’s Forum in Mandaluyong on Sunday 22 February with Jay kicking off the proceedings at 2pm.
