I first learned about Design Week Philippines through a post by lifeafterbreakfastph’s Alessa Lanot on Instagram. I also read on Facebook that the Urban Sketcher Philippines will be holding a workshop-sketchwalk during that weekend.
My sister and I got curious on this whole Design Week thing that we decided to go to Intramuros last April 16 to check it out.
When we got to the area, it seemed quiet. We barely felt any festivities of some sort – assumed that it will give a vibe similar to that of CCP’s Pasinaya. We saw tarps, posters and standees. Those lead us to Casa Manila, where we registered and got a passport to be stamped if we participated in any activity related to the event.
