Ibagiw festival launch set

A FESTIVAL in November is set.

Led by the Baguio Arts and Creative Council (BACCI) and festival creative director Karlo Altomonte, a launch of the iBagiw, is set for this week.

The creative festival will partner with artists and craftsmen through BACCI, spearheading the preparation for the seven day activity.

During the weeklong celebration, various areas in the city will also schedule their own events in support of the festival with UP Baguio scheduling a workshop and quorum convergence for ASEAN craftsmen with a bazaar and forum.

The Department of Tourism will also launch creative circuit tour of the city which will focus on creative hubs for both private and public areas.

A weaving exhibition as well as a fashion show and musical will also be featured by Habi as well as private galleries to open exhibits on that period.

Last year, the Baguio International fest, EntaCool, was launched coined from the “Entaku” meaning lets go and ‘cool’ denoting Baguio as a cool place with cool people calls on the public to celebrate cool culture and creativity.

Baguio City is part of 64 cities from 44 countries which have been designated as Unesco Creative Cities with the objective of fostering innovations and creativity as key drivers for a more sustainable and inclusive urban development with the November festival as the highlight for this year.
