Waves of Hope Workshop in Moalboal- Part 1

The last of the holiday workshops that Paulina Constancia conducted was “Waves of Hope/Mga Balud sa Paglaum“.  It was an expressive arts workshop held on the beach in Moalboal in front of Club Serena Resort. This was facilitated by Paulina for the Cebu Technological University (Molaboal Campus) World Literature students of US Peace Corps Volunteer ROBBIE. Being Hawaiian, a workshop on the beach surely made Robbie super excited.

The first activity was “Stories from the Sea” . The participants were tasked to find an object on the beach and come back to the group to tell its story.

Everybody gets a turn to show their found beach object and tell its story

The assortment of found objects in one of the blue trays is Miss Robbie’s and she calls it “The Grass is Always Greener on the Other Side”, and it goes with an environmental message. Apparently this is a sampler of the Little Mermaid’s whosits and whatsits galore.
She says “remember, pick up every piece of plastic you can find on the beach to save the mermaids!”

The second activity was “Message in a Bottle”. The participants were made to pretend they’re sending a message in a bottle. And it had to be a message of hope for somebody in despair across the sea. When they were done writing, the message went into a jar (since there were lots of messages to accommodate). Then they pick a message to read and respond out loud. The identity of sender is then revealed to the receiver and they shake hands or hug.(sorry no pictures to show here).
