Manila Social and Politica Walk
The Philippines is a remote and little-known country that has nevertheless had a significant historical connection with both Spain and somehow with many of Latin America's Hispanic countries as well. A country with crystal-clear waters, endless beaches, the very heart of what the word paradise means. In this country, we can find a lot of light, yes… but also a lot of shadows. We’re going to have a look at the great things, as well as the shadows of the country. This interactive storytelling walk is meant to have the flow and information-heavy experience of a documentary. It takes us into a comprehensive analysis, providing surprising answers. It highlights the social and political elements of the Philippines, from the creation of the Filipino state to modern times. We’ll address both historical and current events from a balanced & non-biased point of view to help you determine your views of this land for yourself. The experience is aimed at people with a genuine interest in politics and those keen to learn more about the situation in the Philippines by conducting some first-hand research. Feel free to contact me for a date and hour that suits you best.
