We have been supported by the Danish Art council to go to Manila for a research trip to be able to create Manila VOL. 2.
By sending Ray Roa from P-noise and Julie Rasmussen from NORDLYS they will meet up with new and old collaborators, scout for locations and be inspired to create a new cultural meeting point for Nordic and Filipino artists.
6th of June
We arrived in hot Manila, where we met up with our local bodyguards (Rays cousins) and got to our hostel Lub d, which is in the heart of Manila. This could definitely work as a good place for the artists to stay, if we choose locations in this area. It´s light and clean rooms, and a nice meeting point in the lobby with food drinks and a big meeting room. There will also soon be a rooftop restaurant!
