EndDanger, An Art and Music Fund Raising Event

Poster - EndDanger

EndDanger will feature mixed media artworks from the group Artists for Nature and performances from Flying Ipis, Extrapolation, and other music bands. This calls attention to the growing problem of annual endangerment in the Philippines and encourage the community to get involved in conservation and protection efforts.

The artists and organizers behind EndDanger seek to raise funds for the monitoring of one the Philippines’ most threatened species, the pawikan. All proceeds from the event’s ticket sales will go to the Pawikan Watchers training program, which Save Philippine Seas (SPS) – an independent movement that fights abuse of aquatic resources through legal discourse and social media – launched in cooperation with Protected Areas and Wildlife Bureau (PAWE).

Pawikan Watchers aims to educate volunteers from different parts of the Philippines on the ecology and biology of, and PAWB-approved guidelines for handling sea turtles. Apart from raising funds, Artists for Nature sees the exhibit as an opportunity to broaden public awareness of the urgent need to preserve our wildlife.

EndDanger is sponsored by Numa the Organic and Eco Baby Store and Ministry of Mushrooms and is in partnership with WhenInManila.com, Clean Up Philippines, Eco-Sys Foundation, Green Fins, Society for Sustainable Tourism and Development, Inc., Sea News Network, Butanding Network, UP Green League and Earth UST.

The art exhibit runs from January 19 to February 8, 2013 at Conspiracy Garden Cafe in 59 Visayas Avenue, Project 6, Quezon City.

    Hey! I saw your post on kanye west’s concert in 2010 and i was wondering what time did you have to be there to be first row? Also, how long was the concert?
    Thanks!

      We had to be there roughly 2 hours before the concert. But being in the first row is a combination of having premium tickets + luck. :) Kanye’s concert ran for (maximum) 2 hours. Have fun in this year’s concert!

        Thank you so much for your reply! It’s my first concert and I’m a HUGE Kanye West; do you have any other tips?

    Great advocacy! If only I and the kids are in Manille, I’d pay to be there!

    What I didn’t like about the fog was that the temperature went a little up after a week of it…
