Led by Roger Mond, one of the resident artists of Linangan Art Residency Program, their collective effo

In the past three PAGHILOM festivals, we saw the enthusiastic reception and qualitative growth of the student participants and their outputs especially in the workshops and art talks integral to the PAGHILOM program. These affirm Artletics’ mission of empowering the youth to transform their communities through art and art education. This coming year, we are focusing on equipping and guiding young creatives in their career paths by reframing the art festival as an alternative
The amount of evacuees that took refuge in the municipality of Alfonso amounted to almost two thousand families, a total number of 7,883 individuals.

Paul John Cabanalan b. 1993 is a multi-awarded young artist hailing from Iloilo. He obtained his BS Architecture degree from the Iloilo Science and Technology University, but pursued a full-time career as a painter after winning art competitions while still a student.
