Manila needs love right now. As part of the Escolta Block Party – August 26, 2017​ and Artkitektura​ festivities next weekend, I’m bringing back the “Love Parade: Making the Invisible City Visible”, a performance art project I developed with First United Museum and 98BCollaboratory back in 2016.

The Manila mindset lives in malls. The Love Parade project aims to remove that mindset from the mall and return it to the street where it rightfully belongs. By taking a walking tour through Manila’s original high streets like Escolta, Ongpin, and Muella dela Industria by the Pasig River, we will articulate a sense of place for this city. We’ll visit heritage buildings like the Juan Luna Building, First United Building, Calvo Building, and the stunning El Hogar by the Jones Bridge. We’ll check out bakeries, bazaars, take photos, collect souvenirs, and stick tiny little hearts all over this city.

If you wish to do cosplay for this tour, do your own performance project, or just freely express how much you love yourself and your city – please do! The more stuff we try to pull off, the better. Feel free to join me at Fred’s Revolution bar at HUB: Make Lab after the tour to party and chat.

Note: PLEASE save the LOVE Parade photo album below on your cellphone before the tour, this will act as your map and your visual guide.

The LOVE Parade album is here:

Thank you to 98B Collaboratory, First United Building Community Museum,
