Learn the ancient, pre-colonial writing system of the Filipino people in this deeply engaging course on Filipino calligraphy.
Manila For A Day believes in keeping the Filipino soul alive and vibrant so we do our part in this mission by helping to preserve this nearly extinct writing method. Be part of a growing movement to indigenize and not colonize by learning Baybayin—mistakenly attributed as “alibata” by some—in the comfort of your school or office on a schedule that’s convenient for you!
We bring science, art, and history together in one customized course that we deliver straight to your door. Customized to fit your or your organization’s available time, you can book anything from a single day’s crash course to multi-session courses for true mastery of this incredible writing system.
This is perfect for anyone who wants their children and the generations after to read, write, and think in our own language and to recognize that we are at par with English and other western languages.
We have a veritable collection of degrees and experience among our Cultural Navigators from only the best universities in the country. When we run a talk for you, you can rest assured that you have actual experts in the room.
We hate being bored, so we try to make sure that you never are! All our talks and workshops keep two things in mind at all times: that you’re learning, and that you’re having fun doing so!
APA or MLA? Our Cultural Navigators are proud of their academic backgrounds and are passionate about being able to properly cite their sources. We check and double check everything so you don’t have to.
The talk may be over, but your experience doesn’t to end there! You can always reach out after a talk or workshop to ask for more resources or more reading material on the subject.
Why is cultural intelligence important?
Whether it’s colleagues from another province or from another country, you’re now living in a nation where you’re more and more likely to work in a multicultural environment. A low CQ is an unnecessary disadvantage you can’t afford.
