Happy New Year to all of you from your friends at the Museum of Naïve Art [MoNA] in Cebu.
Recently, the MoNA, in cooperation with the Psychology Volunteers on Bikes (Psych Vols), organized a workshop for women and children in difficult situations. It was a simple activity with a very important message – what society might perceive as trash can still be repurposed and revitalized.
The project: Turning old tarpaulin banners into useful book bags and day packs (workshop concept and facilitation by Edna Lee of Psych Vols)
Three simple steps: 1)cut the tarp, 2)sew with running or blanket stitch, 3) attach strap
Pretty good for first attempt at reused/repurposed tarp bags
Check out their handmade DAY PACKS
Proudly handmade –book bags, day packs, grocery bags!
We are happy to share that Paulina Constancia’s “Pedalling for Change” art series (which is permanently housed at the Museum of Bicycling in Cebu) is featured in the current issue of the Kyoto Journal (KJ) (Issue #89, Oct-Dec 2017) . KJ is a quarterly publication circulated in Japan and around Asia.
The 6 page article in the Kyoto Journal’s issue No. 89 is “an interview with “Psychology Volunteers on Bikes” founders Edna Lee and Mishka Watin, from Cebu, the Philippines, on taking a permaculture approach to more enlightened urban planning”.
