ACMC Group Visits MoNA

A few days ago a group of little folks from Minglanilla with their parents and teachers came to visit the MoNA. They were from the Alchemist Child Minding Centre (ACMC).

The visit started off with a talk and workshop with Paulina and then a museum tour. Here are some photos from their visit.

Kindai Uni students MoNA workshops (1 of 4)

A group of Kindai University students led by their professor Andrew Atkins is in town for a sustainability tour in Cebu. The Psychology Volunteers on Bikes, The Cebu trio of permaculture hotels: West Gorordo Hotel, Elicon House and Mayflower Inn and the MoNA are teaming up to give these students meaningful experiences during their visit to Cebu.

Here are some photos of the welcome workshop facilitated by MoNA’s Paulina Constancia. The workshop was intended to give the Japanese uni students tidbits of the local culture by means of an ntroduction to fruits and expressions. Paulina aptly called the session “Finger Fruits: (pun on Finger Food)…not too much, not too little, just a teaser…

Last Sept 29 and 30, MoNA was happy to welcome a group of 163 students and 8 teachers from Saint Theresa’s College. They were doing a Green Hotel Tour at West Gorordo Hotel. They learned about the different eco features and practices at the hotel as well as how the Museum of Naïve Art is a means to promote sustainability and connectedness in our community.
