The Iloilo Bloggers Society met with Iloilo City Mayor Jerry Treñas to introduce the group and to express their support for the upcoming Iloilo Summer Arts Festival set to happen this April and May. After a lengthy discussion, the mayor toured the bloggers around his office where varied art pieces from local and national artists are installed. The office also houses a photo and award of Ramon Muzones, an Ilonggo hailed National Artist for Literature.
“We want to contribute to making ISAF 2020 a successful event and we appreciate the openness of the festival organizing team and Mayor Jerry Treñas to partner with the members of the Iloilo Bloggers Society,” states Ted Aldwin Ong of peoplesdomain.net.
A month-long event, the Iloilo Summer Arts Festival will feature events and activities geared at promoting Iloilo as a center for culture and arts. The festival will feature Ilonggo artists in all forms of art: visual art, music, dance, film, theater, and literature, as well as culinary, horticulture, and culture in the living museum. It is also said to be the biggest and longest art festival in the country.
It can be recalled that the art industry is slowly booming in Iloilo – murals being crafted as local attractions, public places being adorned with unique creations, and even bridges are being painted on.
The Iloilo Bloggers Society was formed in July 2019 and registered with the Securities and Exchange Commission in January 2020. The group is composed of Ilonggo bloggers. Although focused on different niches, the members converge in a bid to promote Iloilo and its activities.
