With its two trailblazing news formats – reels and bullets – everyone can get to know more updates, in no time at all. This is the future of news. Welcome to Newsreels.

On top of that, Newsreels covers a wider spectrum of publishers – right from the regional/local level to the global news houses.

BPI Foundation takes BPI Art Collection online with first virtual exhibit

The “BPI: Banking on the Arts” virtual exhibit features over 50 artworks from the BPI Art Collection

BPI Foundation, the social development arm of BPI, in partnership with the Ayala Museum, launched its first-ever virtual exhibit titled BPI: Banking on the Arts as part of the Bank’s 170th-anniversary celebration this August. “This museum-like virtual reality experience aims to create better arts awareness and appreciation, reinvent the way people see local art, and more importantly – help boost the Philippine art scene,” said BPI Foundation Executive Director Owen Cammayo. “With the recent surge in confirmed COVID-19 cases and the reimposition of stricter lockdowns, allow us to bring this unique museum experience to you all, while you remain in the safety and comfort of your homes.”

With the help of Ayala Museum’s Curatorial Team led by Senior Curator and Head of Conservation Kenneth Esguerra, BPI: Banking on the Arts was conceptualized to depict BPI as a banking institution through six key virtues: celebration, tradition, relevance, resiliency, creativity and innovation, and growth. It features over 50 pieces from the BPI Art Collection including works of Juan Luna, Justiniano Asuncion, Oscar Zalameda, Justin Nuyda, and Arturo Luz, among others.

“As we aspire to be at the forefront in championing Philippine art, rest assured that we at BPI group will continue to push for more meaningful activities like this to promote our cultural wealth and history as we continue our journey to banking excellence anchored on trust and the best digital offers,” said BPI President and CEO TG Limcaoco.

Recognizing the vulnerability of our cultural sphere amid these challenging times, National Commission on Culture and the Arts (NCCA) Chairman Arsenio Lizaso said, “This virtual exhibit is an excellent opportunity to showcase our cultural heritage to the world. May these works of art and the access they provide to our cultural heritage continue to be a unifying force for the society as we move towards a stronger and more resilient future.”

NCCA Chairman Arsenio Lizaso shows his support for the virtual exhibit.

The virtual exhibit is part of Yugto ng Sining, or Stages of Art program, which aims to preserve Filipino culture and heritage through awareness and appreciation of the arts. Under the program, BPI Foundation also organized an art-making contest for BPI employees to recognize and amplify their artistic abilities, and launched #KulturaSerye, a social media campaign that features the life and works of various Filipino visual artists in the BPI Art Collection.

BPI: Banking on the Arts is available for public viewing online until September 24, 2021, via: www.bpifoundation.org/page/banking-on-the-arts.

PETA OFFERS NEW CYCLE OF ONLINE WORKSHOPS, AND HERE’S WHY YOU SHOULD JOIN

After a successful streaming of its musical Rak of Aegis, the 54-year old theater company, Philippine Educational Theater Association (PETA), delivers its unique brand of theater training to your doorsteps through its upcoming cycle of online workshops from September to October 2021.

Aimed at providing an avenue for learning and creative expression for starters and professionals, PETA’s exclusive online workshops are tailored to meet the demands of adults who are looking for personal artistic development in between their busy work-from-home schedules.

Apart from having a chance to grow artistically, there’s a few other reasons why joining a PETA workshop is a worthwhile investment for aspiring artists.

1) Be trained by practicing artists and teachers. PETA’s online workshops provide access to some of the company’s finest artist-teachers, who have gone through an intensive teacher training program. This faculty training ensures that participants will experience PETA’s signature curriculum from well-rounded teachers who have rich theater practice and excellent teaching abilities. Teachers for the upcoming workshop cycles include Meann Espinosa and Kiks Baento for Acting for Beginners, Jeff Hernandez and Zoe Damag for Creative Musical Theater, Phil Noble and Ian Segarra for Acting for Screen, and J-Mee Katanyag for Writing for Performance.

2) It encourages collaboration and connection in a safe setting. Online theater classes are a great way to collaborate, connect and engage with other artists remotely. It provides a unique opportunity to experience a kind of community that we don’t have enough of, especially during these extraordinary times.

3) It’s a step towards realizing a dream.  A theater workshop is almost always the first step to a creative career in the performing arts. Now is the perfect time for aspiring artists to hone a skill or try something that they have always wanted to. Participants of PETA’s online workshops can finally kickstart their writing journey, learn the ropes of acting for camera, hone their performance and singing skills, and flex their acting muscles.

4) It redefines performance and creative spaces. Without a physical space that defines where art is made, now any place can transform into a creative hub. Participants don’t need the structure of a classroom or the stage in a theater to make art —it can now happen wherever and whenever. 

5) It’s a way to remind yourself that you are not alone. Studies have shown that involvement in the arts can decrease anxiety and loneliness, increased sense of value and purpose, and other emotional benefits. Through theater, not only are we sharing a part of ourselves through creative expression, it also allows us to have a shared experience and valuable connection with other people.

These are only a few of the many reasons why one should be involved in the arts. For interested applicants, PETA’s virtual doors are now open for professionals, or to any serious beginner or aspiring artist.
