I recently had an event to help raise funds for Grace Nono’s Tao Foundation where artwork was auctioned off. I have 1 remaining piece that says “Babaylan”. It’s up for auction on eBay right here. 100% of the proceeds go to the Tao Foundation.
The Tao Foundation for Culture and Arts is a Filipino non-profit organization founded by a group of artists, educators and social workers to facilitate contacts and relationships between local culture practitioners and the globalized population. These encounters are geared towards the transmission of local cultural knowledge at a historical juncture when most villages have become fragmented. The Foundation organizes face-to-face encounters and more focused mentorships, and conducts research and publications.
Tragically, Typhoon Pablo destroyed the Foundation’s activity center in December of 2012, severely limiting the scope of the Foundations activities. For just $10,000 the Foundation will be able to reconstruct the activity center and expand on their great work. This will enable the Foundation to once again offer workshops and classes on traditional arts, music, food, dance, and more. By donating you’ll be helping the Tao Foundation promote inter-tribal, inter-faith, and cross-cultural dialogue among Filipinos in the homeland; Filipinos in the homeland and in the diaspora; and Filipinos and other nationalities, towards shared initiatives to promote the health of local cultures and of the earth. The Tao Foundation for Culture and Arts has been registered as a non-profit NGO under the Philippine Securities and Exchange Commission since 1994.
