Manilatown Heritage Foundation presents
FACTSHEET: Activism is NOT a crime.

“FACT SHEET: Activism is Not a Crime,” showcases 30 posters by artists in the U.S. and the Philippines about human rights violations in the Philippines. It is inspired by Bay Area’s Social Serigraphy movement that started in the 1960s, as well as by the works and ideas of Artist Arrest, an art collective in the Philippines. FACT SHEET shows how art can be used as a social practice to form alliances and mobilize, from a single person to an entire nation.

  1. Hope there is a site where all the works are published to be viewed on-line by people who can’t be there at the location of the exhibit.

    Kudos and more power to Artists’ Arrest and the visual artists of the Philippines.

  2. regarding the statement “Activism is NOT a crime.” it’s a shame that here in our campus..some of the students actually thinks that it is INDEED a crime.

    Anyway, since magsa-summer naman ako sa Diliman…pwede ko na ring isingit sa time ko ang magpunta sa exhibit na ito..just hoping my schedule would allow me.
