4. ATBP.

At iba pa! Yes kids, ATBP was the 80’s “etc.”

“Aside from the display, there will be art workshops, on-the-spot portraits and caricatures and also a talk on the relationship of art and interior design on both days,”.


Food and drinks will also be made available as The Filinvest Tent transforms into a colorful festival that will engage all your senses.

“We just keep getting bigger and better each year. It is encouraging  to see the growth of the art community in the South as new aspiring artists and renowned veterans showcase their works together in one venue,” explains South Arts Festival organizer JJ Duque.

“Definitely, we have a lot of individual artists exhibiting for the first time, and I’m proud that the South Arts Festival gives an opportunity for them to try to showcase and sell their art. It could be a painful lesson, but at least, they have the chance to participate alongside some big names in the art scene,” Duque adds.
