START HERE #2: PAELLA SALON

Start Here's second event ever and first event in Manila is a small, focused affair for cultural workers, artists, designers and urban planners. (Super authentic Costa Daurada style) Paella was served to accompany conversations on how to give more intelligently. Guests shared their experiences on what it’s like to try to combine social or educational work in the Philippines from a design or art platform.

This Start Here event is part of a series of “salons” conceptualized by Filipino artist Wawi Navarroza. She held the first one (Photographer Salon) at her studio in December last year. Paella Salon, the third in her Salon series, was co-organized by Navarroza and the OCD.
