CalligraFilipino: Reviving a Dead Script
CalligraFilipino is an ongoing project that aims to reignite Filipinos' interest in our culture through the re-education and celebration of our ancestral writing script. Baybayin and other similar writing scripts of the Philippines are in danger of dying out if not practiced and propagated. CalligraFilipino makes learning and practicing our ancestral scripts interesting through visual and artistic means, instead of just classroom-like lessons.
As the sole proprietor and artist, I conduct talks, workshops, art exhibits of CalligraFilipino. The coming months are important because we are celebrating Buwan ng Wika, our National Month of Speech (written and spoken), as well as our Indigenous Peoples' Month. Through the help of the Awesome Foundation, we can increase our reach and awareness.
