Sharjah Book Authority explores Filipino talents, culture


DUBAI – The sons and daughters of the modern day heroes will be showcasing their talents and wit on Saturday, April 22 at the Sharjah Expo Center for the Kabayan Cultural Day, as part of the ongoing Sharjah Children’s Reading Festival 2017.

Happening at the Multi-Purpose Hall at 1 pm to 4 pm, students from four different Filipino schools – New Filipino Private School (Sharjah), Far Eastern Private School (Sharjah), The Philippine School (Dubai), and United International Private School (Dubai) – are set to participate at the event.

BANNERTwo categories, elementary and secondary, in each activity will be held.

The projected activities are On the Spot Painting Contest, which will be participated in both categories, while the Robotics Innovation Competition, the OPM Choral Competition, and the Cultural Field Demonstration Competition, will be for one category.

Each school, at least four groups composed of 15 representatives, will join the On the Spot Painting Competition. The theme will be given “on the spot” as well.

Meanwhile, the Robotic contest will challenge students’ creativity. The high school students will make a device that could either walk or move from one place to another. They also need to present to the jurors what they have made and how will it be useful in the future. Six groups composed of at least 16 members will battle it out in this category.

The OPM Chorale stint, on the other hand, will harness students’ talent in singing. They are only allowed to use natural sounds, including the four types of voices: tenor, soprano, bass, and alto. Three groups from the high school category will impress the jurors and 3,000 expected audiences.

The highlight of the event, Cultural Field Demonstration, will display Philippine’s culture and tradition in some regions back home through dancing and showcasing of traditional dresses. Three groups will showcase the treasure of the Philippines.

Each category will be judged by different panels of critics.

Various private sectors based in the country will also support the event, adding photo booth, face painting area and there will be also a group of nurses that will monitor one’s blood pressure and sugar, and a bakeshop to distribute breads.

“Its objective is to showcase of what culture we have and what we do in the Philippines,” Orandantes Delizo, one of the chairmen of Filipino Volunteers in the UAE group, said.

“We want to show to other nationalities that we have various culture and skills,” he added.

Several Filipino groups will also join the event, including the presence of members from the Philippine Embassy in Abu Dhabi and Philippine Consulate General in Dubai and the Northern Emirates.

Members of the Sharjah Book Authority and Sharjah Children’s Reading Festival are also expected to grace the gathering.

Three Filipino authors will also grace the event, including award-winning author and illustrator May Tobias-Papa, author-architect Jomike Tejido, and medical doctor and children’s author Luis Gatmaitan.

“We have a popular singer-based in the country to entertain the guests,” Delizo added.

“We are inviting lahat ng mga Filipinos dito na um-attend para makita nila ang talent at skills ng mga Filipinos.

“Hindi lang yung culture nila makikita nila, kundi pati yung regions nila,” Delizo assured.

He also wants to show that Filipinos in the country are united, not divided.

Gift vouchers and freebies will be distributed, Delizo said.
