• All set for Cebu Design Week

    For this year’s Cebu Design Week, a forum where creative people can gather is happening in the city. The Tropical Futures Forum is an event that discusses how creativity and design can help make cities and communities better. The event was made possible by the partnership of DTI Philippines, Tropical Futures Institute, Happy Garaje, The Company Cebu, PRWorks, Inc., and TechTalks.ph.

    The forum features 15 award-winning and world-class guests. Guests speakers are creatives from New York, Singapore, Japan, Manila, and Cebu. These creatives are people that the organizers connected with throughout their careers.

    “Most of it is about people’s work that has a lot of that do-it-yourself spirit. You know, the kind that just says, I think this needs to be here so I would like to make it happen.” Mark Deutsch, the organizer of the Tropical Futures Forum, said. They will talk about their creative projects that address education, film, music, and art. The challenges of small and medium businesses will also be discussed. The speakers are also going to talk about personal creative growth. Panel discussions are also in the works. Represented programs and organizations like Door to Asia, Happy Garaje, Create Cebu, and Works of Heart are participating in the forum.

    Other than the talks, Dan Matutina and Plus63 are presenting a portfolio review. You can sign up to present your portfolio and get insight on how to further your art. Dang Seringis also curating the Look Here exhibit. It is an all-women graphic design exhibit. Door to Asia is holding sharing sessions. Businesses or organizations can sign up to discuss design obstacles. A film screening of the movie Kusama: Infinity by Yayoi Kusama will be featured at 7:30PM during the forum. The movie was featured in the Design Film Festival in Singapore.
