2nd UST/J Elizalde Navarro Arts Workshop in Baguio

The "2nd Jeremias Elizalde Navarro National Seminar Workshop on Arts Criticism" is now on its first day at the new Colione Hotel along Easter Road, Baguio City.  Scheduled from 23-29 May 2010, it is sponsored by the Varsitarian, the eight-decade old student publication of the University of Santo Tomas (UST).

The workshop seeks not only to honor J. Elizalde Navarro, one of the Philippines 14 National Artists for the Visual Arts, but also to serve as one of the long line of activities in the run-up to the UST's 400th year anniversary in 2011.

The 10 fellows who made it to the workshop are Aidel Paul Belamide (UPLB), Mary Jessel B. Duque (UPD), Anne Ensomo (AdMU), Luigi Eraneta (AdMU), Alona U. Guevarra (ADMU), Alvin Ringgo C. Reyes (STC), Frank Lloyd B. Tiongson (UPD), Jaymee Siao (UST), Karren Sena (UST), Joanna Parungao (UST), Scott Saboy (UPB),  and Grace Subido (UPB).  Their works, including those of the 1st JEN workshop, are expected to be slated for publication next year.

The following professors/writers serve as panelists to the second workshop: Ferdinand M. Lopez (UST), Oscar Campomanes (ADMU), Gary Devilles (ADMU), Ralph Galan (UST), John Jack Wigley (UST), Nerisa del Carmen Guevarra (UST), and Lito Zulueta (UST).

Part of the week-long learning event is a tour at the famous BenCab Museum and an "interaction" with another National Artist for the Visual Arts, Benedicto R. Cabrera.   The fellows will also be privileged to drink  from the wisdom  of Cordillera Studies Center (CSC) director, UPB professor, and  noted cultural/literary critic Delfin L. Tolentino,Jr.
