Arts Month celebration here opened in style; a simple and austere ceremony, hides what could be Bohol’s innovative contribution to disaster struck communities.

Just as Sangguniang Panlalawigan Bohol Culture and Arts Committee Chair Godofreda Tirol, declared the Arts Month open, somewhere in the sidelines, Boholano artists huddle to finalize a training module which could make Bohol carve another first in Philippine Arts history.

The day the Board Member Tirol declared the celebration open was also the day when a team of local artists visit the venue for the next day’s integrated arts workshop for public school teachers of severely affected towns here.

The goal is to enhance the teaching skills of teachers who would be equipped with special skills in arts for healing therapies, so they can properly process problems of school children which could be disaster trauma related, according to program initiators in Bohol.

Adopting Kasing Sining, art on the edge, art with a heart, the workshops are arts for Healing disaster-Impacted communities of Maribojoc and Antequera and Loon this next week.

Using the arts, it aims to restoring the wholeness, life, hope, shelter, community and heritage of people through a movement of culture caregivers and artists for crisis, explains Lutgardo Labad, during a meeting with workshop coordinators and facilitators at Garden Café, a week ago.

The workshop is a continuing activity of the Dayaw Bohol, and One Heart Express, which uses the Basic Integrated Theater Arts Workshop template to help upgrade the pedagogy experience of local artist teachers, multi-awarded cultural worker Labad added.

Both programs had arts for healing workshops given to disaster hit communities, take its roots from indigenous cultures as well as community experience.

The workshop is aimed at equipping public school teachers with another tool to get into the sensitivities of children in calamity areas to process and provide mental health and psycho-social support using arts as the medium.

The ultimate goal is to allow the children in calamity areas to creatively release their trauma as a starting point for teachers and the communities to get to the children and then motivate them to express, Save the Children representatives said.

Save the Children is one of the many international organizations handling the post trauma stress therapies of calamity victims, the organization focusing on children in internally displace communities and their issues.

Arts Month keynote speaker City Mayor John Geesnell Yap also pointed out that the Arts Month belongs to the Hearts Month.

Heart, Joy, Love----the main elements in the Arts Programs for 2014 Philippine Arts Festival (PAF) for the February Arts Month Celebration, will be the workshop’s underlying theme, local artist and literary arts mentor said.

Moreover, after the workshops, Bohol intends to bring in Tanghal Asia here, and set up an International Arts for Healing Festival anytime soon. (RAC)
