Y Space at the Yuchengco Museum is opening their doors to a festival that is not like any other.
In a study conducted to analyze 500 locations worldwide, Manila ranked more stressful than war-torn Damascus in Syria! The research was based on pollution, traffic levels, public transport, percentage of green spaces, the financial status of citizens including debt levels, and physical and mental health. This study shows how a great majority of people in the city are stressed out, how the rise of depression and illnesses continues to affect lives, and how spirits are broken. The rise of suicides in the young and the sense of hopelessness for a sustainable future are frightening currents in the lives of the young today. Disruption of the norm is what is being experienced in all walks of life and in the fields of industries. Fears are forcing everyone to find new tools to cope with living.
We believe it is time to bring the discussion of contemporary spirituality and consciousness right next to the expressive arts of our culture, both traditional and pop.
