STRONG & SWEET: ASTIGIRL TWEET SERING & THE CREATIVE LIFE
+ The 100 Book Astigirl Challenge with Sarah Queblatin
My friend Dang Sering, a wonderful graphic design who is also into mandalas and her sister Palanca Awardee writer Tweet Sering are pledging P10,000 for 100 copies of "Astigirl: A Grown Girl Living On Her Own Terms" sold for the Peace Art Actions for a campaign for children calling for the end of armed conflict in this generation.
Tweet will be talking about her book, creativity, flexing some writing muscles and self-publishing her book.
Please come to Cafe Xocolat, B. Gonzales St., Loyola Heights (Katipunan), Quezon City this June 4, Saturday, at 4:00 pm for a fun mandala-making session as an introduction to my work and maybe learn about yourself through this wonderful artmaking process.
I won't be personally present during this activity as I am here in Bacolod working with children who are learning about children's rights and are ensuring the prevention of recruitment of children in armed groups. This is for a life-skills workshop through artmaking. I will be sending a video of me and the children here making instructions on the mandala making process. Dang Sering will be co-facilitating from Manila.
Bring some coloring materials (crayons, pencils, etc.) for this funtivity. This will be followed by the talk of Tweet, some Q&A, capped off with really delicious snacks by Cafe Xocolat. This event is FREE and open to the public.
Our heartfelt thanks and warm hugs to the owners and staff of Cafe Xocolat for sponsoring this event. :D
For questions or directions, text or call Dang at (0917) 5337638 / email at firstname.lastname@example.org. :)

The proceeds will go to upcoming peace art actions which include the use of seeded paper art and natural dye paints with messages for the GPH (Government of the Philippines) and the NDF (National Democratic Front) in Oslo and a soil painting mural for the GPH and MILF (Moro Islamic Liberation Front) in Jakarta this June.
All these will be done by children and for the children to remind the Peace Panelists to commit to mainstreaming child rights and issues in the Peace Agreement and to inspire and affirm their work for peace by showing their support through various creative participation.
Hope to see you!
