Bente Singko: A Festival of Memories, A Creation of New Stories seeks to mainstream human rights and remind the people of the horrors of Martial Law and take stock of its lessons so that those dark years may never happen again. Bente Singko will use the arts, both visual and literary, as the venue to convey the message to the people. It will be an opportunity for artists who witnessed and even experienced the atrocities of martial law to share their stories and influence the public, especially today’s youth, to always remain vigilant.
A festival of memories
Bente Singko commemorates the downfall of dictatorship by bringing back the memories and stories about heroism of freedom fighters, human rights defenders, activists and revolutionaries during that time. It’s a story telling through the arts.
A creation of new stories
Bente Singko will also encourage expression and interpretation of the new generation about issues that are still present up to now.
The festival will be conducted in 5 schools. This will be instrumental in empowering students through the inputs of various artists. TFDP, having been established during the height of Martial Law, will look back at the struggles of the people, during Martial Law and learn from its lessons.
