Turning fishermen into budding sculpture
MetadataShow full item record
In the case of a group of fishermen from a town in Capiz that was devastated in November last year by Supertyphoon “Yolanda,” 24 little hours were all it took to transform them from typhoon survivors into budding sculptors with works of art good enough to be exhibited and sold in the Philippine capital. Helping them learn the new, useful skill is a group of former Quezon fishermen who also know how it is to live through a natural disaster. The men from Quezon formed the Banglos Artists Community Group and were themselves taught how to make useful art pieces out of driftwood by known sculptor Rey Contreras, whose services were tapped by Smart Communications Inc.
