2011 Children's Arts Happening: BUKLAT

What are your plans this weekend?  Here's a good way to spend the weekend with the kids and those that loves reading and the arts with PETA-CTP.

For more than twenty years, the PETA Children's Theater Program (PETA-CTP) has been working extensively with children and young people in marginalized communities through the medium of theater—an instrument for their self-expression, creativity, education, protection and development.  The program assures the engagement and the participation of children and young people in the process of developing stories, playmaking, capacity building and in developing community performances and sustained cultural programs in communities and shelters of children in difficult circumstances.

For its annual Children's Arts Happeningin cooperation with Lampara Publishing House and Terre Des Hommes Netherlnds, PETA-CTP is launching the very first Storybook Theater Project entitled “BUKLAT: Buhayin ang Aklat!” This will take place on November 12-13, 2011 at the PETA Theater Center, #5 Eymard Drive, New Manila, Quezon City.
The Storybook Theater Project aims to instill in every young Filipino the love for reading and books. It will provide a space for children and for those young at heart that work with children to explore how to develop an appreciation for the written word through different performances, workshops, and forums. The project also aims to popularize local children’s literature.
