Art Exchange Manila
Bring out the artist in you by joining the week-long arts and crafts event of The Craft Central this April 19-25 at Greenbelt 5.

Via Manila Workshops

Understand the different sides of the website and how to create a good online strategy through Dennis Lim, Digital Head of ABS-CBN. Register here.
Rebelde Film Camp Year 4
Ever wanted to learn more about filmmaking but no idea where to start? Fret not; Rebelde Film Camp is not only for film and media students; it’s also open to those who have passion to learn about the art sans the experience. Learn from renowned directors and filmmakers in this five-day workshop, and even make your own film with your co-participants this July in the beautiful island of Caramoan. Find out how to join here.
San Juan Film Camp Wave
If you’re not available by July for the Rebelde Film Camp, you can join the San Juan Film Camp instead this April 21-24 in La Union. It will be as equally fun, and its powerful roster of filmmakers — Antoinette Jadaone, Richard Bolisay, Carlo Manatad and Victor Villanueva—will surely make you sign up now. Plus, it’s an affordable shindig that makes for an unforgettable experience. You can register here.
