Momo Dalisay! :-)
Hi friends, this is Tin from Artivism Iloilo core group and I'd like to tell you a bit about Momo Dalisay. He is a gifted songwriter, musician, installation artist, landscape designer, and storyteller from Brgy. Lawigan, San Joaquin. Momo advocates ecological healing as part of social healing and sustainable self-care. It was he who inspired me to pursue my love for community arts even more and to embrace the virtues of humility and hospitality in using my creative imagination for a more diverse and inclusive audience. He is the creator of Bakya mo Neneng and Istambay. Moreover, if you go to Balay Kaliwat in San Joaquin (his home and continuous building project), you're going to step into his aspiration for an intimate relationship with the natural world.
Bonus: he is childlike, cool and fashionable, and funny! The Ilonggo arts community loves him for his openness and maabyanon spirit.
I am really curious about your favorite advocacy-driven artist from the region or from other cultures. Please share about them here + helpful links to their work.
I love Nong Momo, too. But you and Nond Marrz are my favorite. <3
