Avida Land, in collaboration with Ayala Museum and CNN Philippines Life, recently held Inspire Every Day—a full-day event that celebrates art, literature, history and everything in between, aiming to inspire visitors to pursue their passions in their daily lives. Admission is free.
During the event, visitors engaged in a day of interesting activities and fun-filled pocket events in line with the theme, “Inspiration Got Us Started, Passion Keeps Us Going.” With free access to enter Ayala Museum and the Filipinas Heritage Library, visitors were also treated to a selection of changing exhibitions. This included Object Travelogue/Dialogue, which showcased pieces from the Ayala Museum collection that have been featured in exhibitions abroad; Sanso: Setting the Stage, an exhibition of reproductions of Sanso’s work by artists Toym Imao and James Reyes that showcase his stage and costume design work; and The Diary of Tetsuya Noda: Steven Co Collection, which presents an intimate glimpse into the life of the Japanese contemporary printmaker.
Guests also got a special look at an exhibit from Julia Nebrija called Old Manila Lego Architecture. The action-packed day also included talks on How to Make it in Manila from the metro’s most in-demand fashion photographer BJ Pascual, and Historical Films from multi-award winning film director, composer, editor, sound designer and writer Jerrold Tarog—a can’t-miss-chance for visitors to get up-close and personal with insights, tips and inspiration from these iconic personalities.
Activity Stations were also found throughout the venue, with a patch station from ARTWORK, a portrait studio by BJ Pascual, and historical diorama coloring by the Ayala Museum that are guaranteed to unleash creativity. Incredible and exciting performances were also scheduled throughout the day, with Rock Ballet by Ballet Philippines, a yoga class for your little ones from Fire Tree Press, a Historical Rap Battle, as well as pop-up performances from Manila Symphony Orchestra’s Junior Orchestra and artists from the Tago Jazz Cafe.
Another highlight of the event was Avida Land’s Homepossible installation, located at the Museum Café and brought to life by painter and calligrapher Anina Rubio’s live art. Through Avida’s Homepossible event, visitors were given an opportunity to become homebuyers, find a space where they can express themselves and experience an inspired life firsthand. Avida also launched “Pursuit of Passion,” a lifestyle blog and resource guide that motivates and encourages everyone to breathe life into their passions for art, design, wellness and finance.
“Inspire Every Day and Homepossible are venues for the public to be inspired to achieve their dreams and live their aspirations. "We hope that visitors can take their learnings from the day and carry them on into their daily lives,” says Tess Tatco, Avida Marketing Head.
