Forums, Guided tours

Dear Educators and Friends,

May we invite you and your students to the Nothing to Declare (NTD) Artist Talks scheduled this October and November.


NTD is an independent, makeshift and collaborative initiative by curators, artists, partner organizations, and volunteers.  The exhibitions will feature 50 artists from 18 countries whose artworks contribute to discourses on migration and its themes including travel across geographies, displacement, memories, absences, etc.. NTD is a series of 3 exhibitions at the Blanc Compound (18 October – 12 November, please see details below), Yuchengco Museum (16 November – January 2012), and Vargas Museum (18 November – January 2012).

The series of NTD talks will be opportunities for students and teachers to interact with both local and foreign artists who are participating in this international contemporary art exhibition.  Teachers are advised to download and print their private copy of the education guides which will be made available at
