SoundCloud Philippines, in partnership with CollaboratoryPH and 71O7, invites you to MUSIC SPEAKS – a night of music and spoken word poetry to be held on August 5, 2017 (Saturday) at the Conspiracy Garden Cafe on Visayas Avenue in Quezon City.
Among the musicians from SoundCloud Philippines and poets from CollaboratoryPH who will collaborate on a poetry x music performances are the following:
1. ChuGogol Del Rosario x Ian Christopher Sudiacal
2. Anne Clerigo x Sofia Dara Medina
3. Nuna Mistal Esguerra x Mark Dimaisip
4. Paola Lozare x Leandro Reyes
Entrance fee is P150. All proceeds from this event will go towards the CRIBS Foundation, a shelter for the abandoned, neglected, and surrendered female minor survivors of sexual abuse.
CRIBS aims to provide a safe and loving home environment for each child, free from any hint of violence or abuse. One of its hallmark initiatives is New Beginnings, a program designed to rehabilitate sexually abused girls from communities in and around the National Capital Region. To date, CRIBS’ Receiving House has come to the aid of 2,067 children, while the New Beginnings program has improved the lives of 730 victims of sexual abuse.
Music and art play a big part in the healing of these children. By taking part in art exhibits, dance and acting workshops, or by simply listening to uplifting music, the children of CRIBS are able to unburden their souls and nourish their spirits in a meaningful and productive manner.
SoundCloud Philippines would like to be part of this healing process, even if only for a night, and we invite you to join us on our quest as well.
