My friend Katya Guerrero's mom, Helena Carratala, is starting an art movement and building an island utopia/laboratory for the arts in Palawan and I have agreed to help her find apprentices for her program. So for all of you designers, architects, and artists out there, there is an open call for proposals starting this month. Don't miss this opportunity to learn skills from one of the Philippine's foremost fashion/design icons and to move your career forward.
Learn more about the amazing artist/designer/restaurateur/entrepreneur Helena Carratala of Azabache here and here and here.
TO: ARTISTES/DESIGNERS FROM ALL DISCIPLINES
THIS IS NOT A CHAIR.
Is a chair just a chair? Is that all it can be?
OPEN YOUR MIND
We are looking for eight creative people who are ready to embark on one of the most exciting experiences of their lives. An apprenticeship that will take your art and design ideas to the next level.
EXERCISE NUMBER ONE:
Submit a proposal in your own style that proves that this chair can be a bag, a shoe, and a belt. Send it to us and you may be chosen to participate in an exclusive six month apprenticeship in THE EXPERIMENTAL DESIGN LABORATORY under the direction of Helena Carratala of Azabache
Be part of a revolution that will challenge the limitations of design, form, and functionality. It won't be easy but we think you know that already.
