G.A.M.E. for kids

ALWIN REAMILLO’s Bayanihan Hopping Spirit House is currently on view at the Ayala Museum in Makati.

AFTER THE successful run of G.A.M.E. (Greenbelt Ayala Museum Experience) last year, featuring renowned Lulu Tan Gan with her Yarn Bomb Knit Bomb exhibition, Ayala Malls Greenbelt hosts another initiative just in time for Independence Day. On June 10, children up to the age of 12 can come visit Ayala Museum for free when they donate a toy, which will be given to the kids of Hero (Help Educate and Rear Orphans) Foundation, a non-profit organization that aims to help the families of fallen soldiers from the Armed Forces of the Philippines. Ayala Museum will also be giving 50% of the day’s museum admission to the organization. The children of the Hero Foundation will also be treated to a day of arts and culture plus fun-filled activities and surprises. There will be booths from Hobbes & Landes and Color Me Mine, as well as sweet treats from Elait! Ice Cream and other concessionaires. In addition, museum-goers can enjoy the Bayanihan Hopping Spirit House, an art installation by Alwin Reamillo. The collapsible bamboo-framed hut on stilts is emblematic of the Filipino value of bayanihan — when townspeople would help carry a neighbor’s bahay kubo when moving to a new site. Reamillo’s Bayanihan Hopping Spirit House has made its own travels, from Sydney to Manila, where it currently resides at the Ayala Museum Plaza. For more information, visit
