ANG Davao Fashion and Design Council (DFDC) ang padayong nag-develop sa usa ka business model alang indigenous people (IP) community sa Davao Region aron madasig silang magsugod og negusyo.

“What we really wanted is not just for the artisans or the IP community to be the makers and manufacturers, but we also want them to manage their own business,” suma ni DFDC secretary Emi Englis.

“We are doing the academic structure and also the business model that we would be able to cascade down to the IP communities and one of these is the protection of their cultural heritage,” dugang niya.

Si DFDC president Dodjie Batu nagsulti sa SunStar Davao nga usa sa tumong sa ilang grupo sa mosunod nga lima ka tuig mao ang malungtarong panginabuhian sa komunidad asa sila nakigbulig.

“This is for them to be encouraged to also teach their younger generation and have a sustainable business kasi yun ang minsan na problema. Nawawalan na ng interest and young people to do it kasi ang tradition at culture ay hindi na masyadong naha-hand-down,” ni Batu.

“I hope in the near future, sila na talaga ang gagawa at magbenta ng mag produkto nila dugang sab niya.

Pipila sa IP communities asa sila nakigbulig mao kadtong eksperto sa pagtahi ug habi sama sa Bagobo Tagabawa ug B’laan.

Ang tribu sa Mandaya nakatutok sab sa hand-made bags ug ubang butang.

Ang business model nga gidebelop kaabag ang Philippine Women Collges (PWC).

“DFDC is also partners with PWC. [Developing a business model] is our share in the community. Even the curriculum of Bachelors in Fine Arts Design, we worked hand in hand with [PWC]. It is also to educate young designers.”

Ni Batu nga ang creative industry sa rehiyon ang hinay-hinay ng nailhan tungod sa desinyo nga naghulagway sa kultura ug arte sa mga tawo niiini.
