3rd Tam-awan International Arts Festival (TIAF) in Baguio City

Chanum Foundation Inc., founder of the noted artists’ haven “Tam-awan Village” in Baguio City will stage the region's biggest festival of the year.

In tandem with the National Commission for Culture and the Arts (NCCA), Chanum Foundation presents the 3rd Tam-awan International Arts Festival (TIAF) happening on May 23 to 27, 2012 in sync with the celebration of the Heritage Month.

The theme of the festival is “BREWING WITH THE ARTS”, aimed to encourage us, to appreciate and take action in preserving our gift of heritage and history.

TIAF Festival Director Chit Asignacion and Chanum Foundation President, Jordan Mang-osan, is gearing for this year’s festival, expected to be the prime art festival of 2012.

Festivities open on May 25 with a traditional Cañao and a press conference at the Village extending to the 26th and closing on the 27th again with traditional Cordilleran rituals.

The three day festival will be featuring different wines from provinces of the cordilleras, wine makers from Ilocos and Germany will also be joining the event.

Demonstrations of wine making, starting M'ay 25 to 27, will be featured all over Tam-awan village where guests and visitors would be able to see the actual process passed on by elders of each province.

Talks on Intellectual Property Rights, Curators Talk on Art Conservation, Museum Restoration, Cordillera Culture Ethnic Attire with Fashion Show, Chinese Art and Culture, and Tattoo art will also be ongoing during the three day event.

A pre-registration for workshops of Song, Dance and Comic art by Annie Bungauen, Benny Sokkong and Danny Acuña will be given. The first festival in 2010 was themed ‘Preserving the gift of Faith” followed by 2011’s “Weaving through the arts,” aiming to portray year by year facets of the Indigenous Cordillera celebrations with its dances, cloth and for this year, traditional wine.

Chanum Foundation, Inc., founded in 1998, began to reconstruct Ifugao houses in Baguio with the view of making a model village accessible to people who have not had the chance to travel to the Cordillera interior.

Tam-awan village was constructed two years earlier than the coming together of Chanum, marking 16 years of the village life for guests and friends of the area.
