Putting up a local feast for the mind and soul, the Ultimate Indie Weekend in Bonifacio Global City will bring a two-fold Independence Day celebration on June 10 – 11, 2017 with the Philippine’s first Manila Mini Maker Faire and the 2nd BGC Arts Center Festival “BGC Loves Local.”
To show that we can bridge the arts and sciences, Bonifacio Art Foundation, Inc., a non-stock, nonprofit organization, is spearheading the Manila Mini Maker Faire through The Mind Museum to put the country on the global tech map, and the BGC Arts Center Festival through the BGC Arts Center to feed your cultural soul.
“No township in the Philippines has ever deliberately made pillars out of science and the arts as part of its founding and development. And with The Mind Museum on its 5th year and the newly created BGC Arts Center, we are even more inspired to rally this science-and-arts bridge to help in nation-building and culture-making”, explains Maria Isabel Garcia, Curator of The Mind Museum and Head of Content of the BGC Arts Program.
Groups of homegrown creative artists, scientists, and engineers are expected to come together in this one rare weekend event. “This fantastic weekend is for everyone – families, friends - everyone curious as to how the arts and the sciences are connected and how these fields talk to each other to serve our lives better. This is the kind of weekend who has engineers, artists and performers to give us fascinating technologies and uplifting performances that could improve the quality of our days – which is the greatest form that art and science could take,” adds Garcia.
