Over 14 teams of health care providers from the Department of Health (DOH) and partner government agencies joined the “Tapestry Making Contest” on July 31, 2018 at Eon Centennial Hotel in Jaro, Iloilo City.
Dr. Donnabelle G. Quindipan, DOH-6 Regional Disaster Risk Reduction Manager for Health, said the contest dubbed “Tapestry of a Resilient Western Visayas” is a collaborative art activity envisioned to gather all health care providers and partner agencies in providing quality services in times of emergencies.
“The Tapestry of a Resilient Western Visayas is an expression of what matters to us and weaving it together as a ritual of being together, connected, united, coordinated in attaining our goal not just as a resilient Western Visayas but as a resilient Philippines,” Quindipan said.
“Resilient Western Visayas Framework” is anchored on the theme of the National Disaster Resilience Month: “Katatagan sa Kalamidad ay Makamtan Kapag Sapat ang Kaalaman sa Kahandaan.”
“The Tapestry is patterned after ‘The Fabric of Life Series to Infinity’ work of prominent Filipino artist Paz Abad Santos,” she added.
The Fabric of Life Series to Infinity is a system of composing artwork using designed boards and putting together the designs whatever order one chooses allows the designs to become integrated into various ways. (PIA-Iloilo)
